The Northern Ireland families who get over £56,000 a year in benefit payouts

Anger has erupted at Northern Ireland's benefits culture after it emerged some families are picking up almost £60,000 a year

BY ADRIAN RUTHERFORD – 20 MARCH 2015  B.T.

Revealed: How ten Northern Ireland households are sharing in £500,000 of state handouts, money that '98% of families here can't even imagine'.
Ten households are sharing a whopping £567,000 annually in State handouts, new figures show.

That is £56,700 each on average - more than double the £24,000 average wage.

A worker in full-time employment would need to be earning £85,000 before tax to take home the same amount.

The figures were disclosed by the Social Development Minister in response to an Assembly question from Ukip MLA David McNarry.

Ulster Protestants consider themselves to be a separate nation. This nation they call Ulster
