Deductions from benefits

If you are in receipt of benefits we may be able to ask the Department of Work and Pensions to make a deduction from each payment they make to you. The exact amount will depend on figures set by the government.

The benefits we may be able to make deductions from are:

  •  Income support
  •  Job seekers allowance (income based)
  •  Employment and support allowance (income related)
  •  Universal credit
  •  Pension credit (guaranteed credit)
