How much the law says you need to live.

Currently set at £105/week, this law caps my Income Support at £43/week because I am not working and in receipt of Carers Allowance (£62). If I were to start part time work I would lose this benefit and only be able to earn £110 max, also may affect Housing Benefit and Council Tax rebate. Therefore I would be working a 50-55 hour week for £172 equalling a measly £3.50 an hour. Less if council tax/housing benefit was affected, this is before any deductions like child maintenance and water/sewerage charges are taken into account.

Why the contribution is important

This law discriminates unfairly as there are people on benefits who get more than £105/week. The law is for all, not dependant on circumstances. Can someone show me where this law is written down as the DWP do not reference it any correspondence?
