There is an overall benefit cap affecting all benefits a person / couple receives which means they can never receive more than the following in combined benefits:

  • £500 a week for couples (with or without children living with them)
  • £500 a week for single parents whose children live with them
  • £350 a week for single adults who don’t have children, or whose children don’t live with them

There are plans to reduce the above amounts further.
