Frequently asked questions - Benefit cap
- I’m struggling financially due to the Benefit Cap – what options do I have?
- My grown up son/daughter lives with me – they get benefits in their own right. Are these added to my benefits when working out the Cap?
- I’ve only just lost my job- will the Benefit Cap affect me straight away?
- My Housing Benefit is being capped and I am struggling to pay the shortfall - I might as well just tell the DWP I don’t want one of my benefits so my rent can be paid in full?
