    Afternoon all – to be honest Like a few of us I'm a bit fed up with welfare reform although it does keep us off the streets.

    For the sake of my sanity, can anyone tell me where it says there is no right of appeal against the benefit cap ? It says so in the DWP FAQs but I can't see it in the benefit cap regs.

    All advice gratefully received.

    Surely there has to be a right of appeal. What happens if we’ve got something wrong?

    Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is withered, the god of day goes down upon the dreary scene, and—and in short you are for ever floored.

    You would think so – which is why i want to see the law but this is what the FAQs say

    25. Is there an appeal against being capped?
    Individuals cannot appeal against the decision to apply the benefit cap.
    If DWP is going to cap their benefit we will write to them to inform them of this.
    If they think benefit cap has been calculated incorrectly they may contact us to review this.

    FAQs are on this page
