    Is there proof anywhere to see if your answer is correct as any previous help was for Means Tested Benefits?

    Working age benefits, which means New style ESA/JSA/contributions based ESA/JSA and all other benefits. Just the same as increases in April but next year the increase is more.

    Working age benefits will rise by 10.1%, boosting the finances of millions of the poorest people in the UK, and the Triple Lock will be protected, meaning pensioners will also get a rise in the State Pension and the Pension Credit in line with inflation.

    Contributions based/New style benefits are both working age benefits. You certainly wouldn't claim any of those if you're State Pension age and above.
