Income Support

Income Support is a benefit that can be received by anyone who is in employment and depends on how much they earn. If you are unemployed you will receive other benefits like Job Seeker’s Allowance, but Income Support is specifically aimed at those who are working but aren’t earning enough to fully support themselves and their families. Your entitlement depends on how much you earn from your job, and also takes into consideration how much your partner earns, therefore taking into consideration the total household income.
