Housing Systems: Combating poverty and sustaining tenancies.
On-line Workshop: UC and Turning Pension Age

This Workshop will look at the options for claimants when they turn pension age - including where a working age couple become a 'mixed age' couple.

The rules are very confusing, but there is little published information for claimants to help them make the right decisions. The Workshop will enable you to understand the issues so that you can help claimants make the right claim/s.
