Advice House Benefit Training: Benefits for under twenty-fives
We are currently waiting for detailed regulations concerning the changes to benefit entitlement for young people proposed in the Welfare Reform and Work Act 2015. However, young people are already often at a disadvantage when claiming benefits, sometimes facing extra qualifying conditions and lower rates of payment. This course, for people with a good basic knowledge of the benefits system, looks at the conditions for claiming benefits for young people, both as part of a parent or guardian’s household or independently, their entitlement in and out of full-time, non-advanced education and as a young person estranged from family, and how this is changing due to new legislation.
