Benefit Cap Update

03 August 2017

At the end of May 2017, 614 households in Northamptonshire were subject to the benefit cap. This is a 5.1% decrease in households affected compared with the figure at the end of February 2017 (which was the first quarterly release to reflect the new more stringent cap limits introduced in November 2016). This decrease shows a different pattern to the England average which logged a 2.7% increase in the overall number of households affected by the cap. However within the Northamptonshire figure, two of the county's boroughs (Northampton and Wellingborough) did show an increase in households affected compared to the previous quarter.

An estimated 2,011 children live in these Northamptonshire households. 77% of the households are lone parent households.
