Benefits, tax credits and social care

Major reforms to the benefits system continue to make it challenging for people with disabilities or long-term health conditions to get support. Budgets and social care resources are overstretched, and benefit cuts and rate freezes are still being imposed as inflation hits a five-year high.

As Universal Credit’s rollout is extended, the way it operates is constantly changing. Case law is affecting the way the law is applied, particularly to more recent benefits such as Personal Independence Payment. And in 2018, the current financial help for mortgage interest costs will be replaced by a repayable loans scheme. At this uncertain economic and political time, keeping up with the new rules is crucial.
