Benefit cap – what amount?

Hi All,

We have a client, on UC and subject to the benefit cap.

His total UC would be £3,246.95, and the max amount under the cap is £1916.67 – so cap applied at £1330.28.

However, both TurntoUs and Entitled state that the cap amount should be £861.88?

So there is a difference of £468.40

This is a mixed age couple, with 3 dep children, no health problems and rent within LHA limit. The only household income is CB and SRP, with the SRP being £680.46.

Anybody agree with the calculators and if so, why, as it is not clear what we are missing? 

Or are UC correct?

Thanks in advance.
