Benefits Changes

by | Apr 19, 2019 | information

These are the Governments’s plans for benefits this year:

Working age benefits like Universal Credit (standard) will be the same, so will Housing Benefit – the Government has frozen these rates until 2020.

People in the ESA support group and those getting disability premiums will get a rise of around 2.4%.

People on retirement and basic pension credit will get a 2.6% increase

Single people on minimum pension credit will have a rise from £163 to £167.25

Couples pension credit will rise from £248.80 to £255.25.
