Income Support Contact

One of the most valuable benefits that one can receive is Income Support. This is a type of benefit that will help cover the costs of people who are on a low income. In order to apply for income support, individuals must get the severe disability premium or have gotten the premium the previous month and are still eligible to receive it. Those who are not eligible to apply for the Income Support benefits can apply for the Universal Credit as an alternative.

In order to get the Income Support benefits, you must meet a number of conditions. These include having no income or a low income and no more than 16,000 pounds in savings, not being in full time work and also not being eligible for the Jobseeker’s Allowance or Employment and Support Allowance. Anyone seeking this benefit must also live in either England, Scotland or Wales as well. Individuals seeking Income Support must also be age 16 or older and of the Pension Credit qualifying age. They must also meet other conditions. They will need to be either pregnant, a lone parent, a lone foster parent with a child under 16, a single person caring for a child under 16 years of age and being a career. They must also either be on maternity, paternity or parental leave and are unable to work and receive Statutory Sick Pay, Incapacity Benefit or receive the Severe Disablement Allowance.

Once you are eligible to receive the Income Support, you will be able to get a basic payment as a personal allowance and extra payments which are premiums. Any income or savings over 5,999 pounds can affect the amount you get.

When it comes to compensation, the amount you get per week varies. For those between the ages of 16 to 24 and who are single, the weekly payment will be about 58 pounds. Single individuals age 25 and over are paid 73 pounds per week. A lone parent at age 16 to 17 will receive 58 pounds a week while a long parent 18 or over receives 73 pounds a week. Couples under 18 receive 58 pounds per week, coupes under 18 at the higher rate receive 88 pounds per week. Any couple over the age of 18 receives 115 pounds per week.
