welfare reform – changes to your benefits
If you claim housing benefit to help pay your rent or claim other welfare benefits, you may be affected by changes from April 2013. The changes mean that some people will get less housing benefit than they did before. We know that many of you will be worried about what this could mean for you and your family.
We want to help you find out what’s happening and what you can do to prepare. These webpages provide information about changes to:
- Bedroom Tax and Under-Occupancy
- Universal Credit
- Benefit Limits
- Personal Independence Payment (disability benefit)
- Council Tax Benefit
- Summer Budget 2015
