Urgent Social Security Bulletin

LCNI Social Security Bulletin: No. 32 -  24 March 2020

There has never been a more important time for up-to-date and accurate information on changes to social security law and practice. With an increased demand on advice services and a quickly changing landscape, it is crucial that advisers keep up to speed with efforts to support existing claimants and protect new claimants.

The Law Centre NI Social Security hub has put together a list of key changes and commitments, following meetings with Department for Communities officials.

Please be aware changes are happening on a daily basis. We will endeavour to keep this information as up-to-date is possible within this context.

If you need any further help or clarification, you can contact our social security team on (028) 9024 4401.
