 The UK parliament has a benefit cap in place where familys will not get paid for more than two children regardless how many children they have their are some exemptions one being that if a single parent or a couple earns 620 pound or more in a single assessment period (month) the benefit cap wont apply.with another lockdown and people not being able to work either because of their workplace closing or because of health reasons mental or physical. The furlough amount does not reach the amount needed to make these familys exempt. Boris Johnson needs to lift the benefit cap during the covid pandemic.There are single parent familys and joint claimants that are being cut by in some cases over a thousand pound a month. leaving familys unable to eat  or pay rent on their homes or pay any gas and electricity. Leaving children in poverty. I'm a single mum of seven children.I work hard to make sure the benefit cap does not apply to me so I can pay my rent and feed my children I was forced to stop working through the last lockdown I ended up in rent arrears as a result and debt where I had to borrow money just so the house could be warm and lit up and so the children could eat. I want to work but cant. The Benefit Cap needs to be lifted during the pandemic ASAP this put such a strain on me and my mental health. Being a single parent the pressure is not  healthy for me or my children.
