Changes to Benefits

Benefits changes are coming in April 2017

From the 1st April, serveral changes to welfare benefits are coming into force including changes to Welfare Benefits, Child Tax Credits and Universal Credit.

As the only advice service officially commissioned by the City of London, we help city residents, workers, students and tenants understand their rights and provide them with free, impartial and expert advice. We've also created a guide to what changes are coming into force and when.
