Benefit Cap—Bite Size

Advice House training brought to you with the expertise of Staffordshire North & Stoke-on-Trent Citizens Advice Bureaux.

Originally justified as a measure to peg benefit entitlement at no more than the average wage, the ‘Benefit Cap’ is due to be reduced substantially.  This course, for advisers of all levels of experience, looks at who is exempt, which benefits count towards the Cap and some options that can help if you are affected.

“Very easy to understand. Clear and friendly approach.”
