The National Association of Citizens’ Advice Bureaux claims many families have had benefits reduced by up to a third.

It said the cuts were made without reasonable notice.

The Treasury has urged people to inform the Inland Revenue of any changes to circumstances as soon as possible to ‘prevent over payments mounting up’.

Changes to circumstances such as a pay rise or children leaving home can considerably alter entitlement.
