Changes from 2013: Capping overall benefits
Changes for the housing benefit and benefit system are being planned from 2013 but are not yet law.
The Government plans to get people working by making people on benefits poorer
The Government has said that no non-working household should be entitled to more in benefits than the average working household receives in wages. Surely, this is fair and sounds like common sense?!
The Governments plans on reducing benefit payments possibly through cuts to housing benefit. It is still uncertain how, when and if these cuts will go ahead.
