Petition Increase benefits in line with current levels of inflation

The Government must increase benefits in line with current levels of inflation (at least 6.2), to help stop the cost of living crisis becoming a poverty emergency.

More details

Inflation-linked benefits and tax credits will rise by 3.1% from April 2022, in
line with the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) rate of inflation in September 2021.

However, inflation has now reached 6.2% and are expected to keep rising. This will hit the poorest families hardest and failing to increase benefits to match will push more people into poverty.
