New rules from 1 October 2018

New rules are on the way if you work part-time or run your own business as a secondary occupation while you claim benefits.

New rules also come into force for those who become unemployed after closing down their own business – these rules concern the way to earn benefit rights, the rate you can get, and when we consider your business closed down, etc. 

The rules come into force 1 October 2018.
