Welfare reforms - changes to benefits system
From April 2013 the government is making huge changes to the
benefits system. If you’re claiming benefits you need to do all you
can to be prepared.
If you’re of working age the changes are likely to affect you.
If you are of Pension Credit age (receiving Pension Credit) you
won’t be affected.
