Benefit change survey concern

Have your say

CASH-strapped South Yorkshire residents are ‘unaware’ about an important change to benefits.

Rotherham and District Citizens Advice Bureau completed three surveys about key welfare changes.

It spoke to almost 600 people and found 75.84 per cent had not heard of Universal Credit – which will replace most payments – and 89.4 per cent were unsure about the maximum amount they could receive.
