Income Support usually increases a week after CA, causing this. Not that it will make a huge difference - for a single person on CA and Income Support, the CA goes up £1.90 and the overall increase including CA is £1.95 a week, because of the way they increase benefits: CA goes up by the "Retail Price Index" - about 3.9% at the time of calculating - and Income Support by the "Rossi" Index - the "Retail Price Index" without housing costs, which was 2.3%.

Yet we all pay the same prices. And food has gone up much more than 3.9%. I wonder what MPs will award themselves again?
