Follow the link provided by the DWP Press Office in the above and you see this
All households…in receipt of a disability related benefit are also exempt from the benefit cap says DWP Press Release!! Oh really?
Do a quick google search on “benefit cap exemptions” and you find the Governments own page which details which benefits are exempt from the benefit cap and which are not.
So, in conclusion, the DWP is either saying ESA, Incapacity Benefit and SEVERE DISABLEMENT ALLOWANCE (!!!!!) are not disability related benefits OR ….
DWP IS LYING THROUGH THEIR TEETH!!
