Increase Legacy Benefits

Write to your MP to ensure The Chancellor Rishi Sunak uplifts legacy benefits to match the £20 per week increase that Universal Credit claimants have seen. Over 2 million people have lost out on too much already, it would be unthinkable to let this carry on

Write to your MP

It’s been 7 months since Chancellor Rishi Sunak increased Universal Credit by £20 a week but failed to give the same increase to those on legacy benefits, including Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support and Jobseeker’s Allowance.

In November, this Government will decide the new rates for benefits for the next financial year. Now is our opportunity to make sure Chancellor Rishi Sunak MP doesn’t let over two million people go without the £20 per week increase for another year.

This call, started by the Disability Benefits Consortium (made up of over 100 disability organisations) is backed by over 119,000 members of the public and has also been called for by the Work and Pensions Select Committee and the Social Security Advisory Committee.

Ask your MP to back the call too.
