Benefit Cap

What can you do to stop the cap affecting you

The best way to make sure the cap doesn’t affect you is to either find work or increase your hours so that you qualify for Working Tax Credit (WTC).

If you rent from a private landlord, you may be able to negotiate your rent to a more affordable amount, or you could consider moving to cheaper accommodation, if available.
