Benefit Cap

What is it?

The benefit cap is a limit on the total amount of income from certain benefits a household can receive.  If you are in receipt of more than the benefit cap allows then your housing benefit or universal credit will be reduced until the amount is brought back within the cap.

Information on the support and advice available can be found on our pdf icon information leaflet [274kb].

If you require further information on benefit cap, this can be found on the Department for Work and Pensions website.
