Welfare Changes

Over the past few years, the Government has made a number of changes to the welfare system in Great Britain. These changes are now being introduced in Northern Ireland.

These changes are the biggest to be made to the benefit and tax credit system in over 70 years.

Most working age benefits will be phased out over the coming years and new benefits, with new payment systems, will replace them.

The Northern Ireland Executive has committed £501 million in a four year package to help those who have and will be affected by these changes.
