    The increase applies to the first assessment period starting on or after 11th April. You won't see the increase until your next payment. Some people won't see it until their June payment.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    The earliest payment date that will include the new rates is 17th May.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
