A new benefits cap is here and may affect you. The benefit cap is a limit on the total amount of ‘welfare’ a household can receive.
The new lower cap will be:
• £384.62 a week (£20,000 a year) for couples, families and lone parent claimants
• £257.69 a week for single adults without children.
If you’re worried about how this will affect you then contact our Incomes team on 0300 124 0040 or visit www.takecontrol.wales
