    Hi, I recently moved out of a housing association property into a private property complete unaware of the benefit cap. I am currently receiving help with the short fall of my rent up until June, I have read online that to be exempt of the cap you must earn a certain amount so it no longer applies. Which is fine, I am happy to go to work but just wanted to know if any other parents are affected by the cap and how much it really help them being at work and are you affected by the assessment periods? Sorry for all the questions, I would really appreciate some advice. Thank you.

    Hi Smith21

    The info at this link within the Gingerbread information pages may also be helpful:

    All about the benefit cap – Gingerbread

    This is part of a wider set of information that can be found via this link:

    Benefits, tax credits and universal credit – Gingerbread

    And you’ll also find contact details for the single parent Helpline there, who you could also give a call for further guidance.

    Hope that’s a start to answering part of your query.

    Kind regards

    Michelle
