Jobseekers - Will it affect my Work and Social Welfare Payments?


This depends on a number of factors:

- What social welfare entitlements you are receiving, disability payments and secondary benefits.

- The amount earned and the number of hours that you will be working.

- With certain benefits you will have to apply for an exemption to allow you to take up employment.

- The job coach can speak to you on an individual basis and give you the information that you need.

- Or you can contact your Community Welfare Officer or look up on or call your local Citizens Information Centre.
