    Housing Benefit and low income 30th Nov 17 at 6:39 PM
    If you are claiming due to low income, what amount of income do they call a low income, at which point they start to reduce your benefit?

    Jesus, I'm not surprised people don't make an effort to get off benefits like JSA etc, I had 400£ of ESA a month and got max HB, lose ESA and try and start work self employed but on a low income, half my ESA at present and lose a chunk of HB!
