Benefit Cap

What is the Benefit Cap?

In April 2013, a cap was introduced to limit the total amount in some benefits that working-age people can receive, even if their full entitlement would otherwise be higher.

Applies to: England, Scotland and Wales

It is not law yet in Northern Ireland but may be introduced at a later date. See the NI Direct website for more information.
