Preparing for changes to the Benefit Cap

From this autumn the Welfare Reform and Work Act 2016 will see changes to the current benefit cap levels and the introduction of additional exemptions.

Claimants who could be affected by the changes to benefit cap levels will be informed of them and offered support to help them adjust their circumstances.

Claimants will also be able to receive employment support either through their regular work coach intervention or by requesting voluntary support. Claimants will be able to receive housing and budgetary support. Helplines and GOV.UK will be updated with information about the changes.
Additional advice is available at https://www.gov.uk/benefit-cap.
