A limit on the total amount of benefits that people aged 16 to 64 can receive has begun rolling out across England, Scotland and Wales.
The cap, which applies to people receiving jobseeker's allowance, child benefit, child tax credits and housing benefit, will see couples and single parents receive a maximum of £500 while single people will only receive £350.
The benefits cap, which is said to reflect the average household income, has already been rolled out in four London boroughs and will be fully implemented by 30 September.
