"Government decided to remove the minimum income floor in March which instantly increased my benefits by £214 (back to the amount of being unemployed and without any penalisation for my expenses). Also, the introduction of the school meal vouchers has meant an additional £60 a month. However, these are still not regular payments and somewhat sporadic. This in total still leaves me £300 down per month."
