Important information for anyone thinking about claiming JobSeekers Allowance over the summer:
The new DWP benefit system called Universal Credit now covers much of Sussex, Surrey and some London boroughs and as such any change in your existing benefit arrangement will trigger a reassessment, bringing you under the new rules. Please seek advice before you initiate any changes to your benefits as it is likely this will have a negative impact on your entitlement. We are here to answer your questions
