The Benefit Cap overview
The Benefit Cap limits the overall amount of welfare benefits a ‘working age’ household can receive.
It does not affect you if you and your partner are Pension Credit age.
If you (or you and your partner) are affected it is worth checking to see if you can claim one of the benefits that will exclude you from the Cap.
Go to the ‘Benefit Cap’ page to find out more, and discover if there is anything else you can do if you are affected by the Cap.
