Welfare Reform

What’s changed?

Since 2013 the government has introduced a number of changes to the benefit system. For many people claiming benefits, this has resulted in changes to how much and how the benefits are paid.

The Government‘s reform of the benefit system continues. So if you have been unaffected so far, this doesn’t mean that future changes won’t have an effect on your benefits.
