Income Support rates due to increase in October

Share this page

Wednesday 05 October 2022

Income Support rates will increase from Friday 7th October following States approval of the emergency increase in rates last month.

The States approved a 5% increase to the income support requirement rates (the level of income below which people can receive income support), the limit of weekly income for people living in the community (also known as the benefit limitation), and the maximum rent allowances (the maximum amount that income support can contribute towards rental payments).

This will close some of the gap between the current income support rates and the current cost of food, fuel, rent and other essential goods and services.

If you have any questions, please email the Income Support team at IncomeSupport@gov.gg or call the Customer Hub on 01481 221000.
