As reported elsewhere on the Benefits and Work site, details of potential Conservative cuts to benefits have emerged.{jcomments on}

These include:

  • taxing DLA, PIP and AA,
  • axeing contribution-based ESA and JSA,
  • cutting the work-related activity component of ESA to 50p,
  • cutting carers allowance numbers by 40%,
  • making people pay the first 10% of their housing benefit.

How would these cuts affect you?

What sort of income would you have left to live on and would it be possible to do so?
