We’ve reprinted our popular booklet Your Welfare Rights. There have been some changes to the law since the booklet was last printed in April 2012. These changes are highlighted and explained at the beginning of the booklet. Previous versions of the booklet and/or update insert should be recycled.
This booklet explains in plain language:
- who can get welfare,
- how to apply for welfare,
- what benefits are available,
- your responsibilities while on welfare, and
- how to appeal a decision about your benefits.
The booklet also has detailed information on who can help you and where to get more information.
