    Yes jobseekers will be changing in 2012 I think or 2013. So if you are on it for longer than 52 weeks then it will drop by 20%. The sanctions will be getting worse as well. So they last for longer. I will have a look when I am working tomorrow for you when I am working on more details.

    Jsa will also be called universal credit by 2013 but existing claimants won't be moved over to it until 2016/17. universal credit will cover wtc, ctc, ESA, jsa, Income support, housing benefit and more and more

    Other changes are for hb and ctb claimants who have nondependants in the household the nondependant charge is going up a lot, there will be a lit of people who don't qualify. Lha will be reduduced that will affect a lot of people also that's from April as well. It won't affdct people currently claim you will get 9 months protection.


    There is more, if you want any more details, please ask and I will try and help :)
