Benefit rates: How much you’ll get, and how much you can earn
What rate of benefit will I be on?
This will depend on your particular benefit, your personal circumstances (for example, if you have any children and if so, how many), and whether you have other income.
If you earn income while on the benefit, this could affect your benefit rate (see below, “How earning money will affect your benefit (‘Abatement‘)”).
Annual adjustments of benefit rates
The government usually adjusts all benefit rates once a year, on 1 April.
