Claiming benefits online

leave a comment »

The Digital Inclusion agenda is becoming increasingly important due to the Government’s planned Welfare Reform changes.

By 2013, the majority of benefit claims will be made using an online form. This will have a huge impact not only on the people claiming benefits but on the organisations who support them. The system will make it easier for people who claim multiple benefits as the online form will auto populate information from previous applications and be linked to all the relevant government departments.

Click.Connect. Discover works with people in Wales to ensure that as many as possible are able to access these online services and information. Please visit www.clickconnectdiscover.org for more information and to get in touch with us.
