The Government has announced details of the Families Package which provides support to improve incomes for low and middle income families with children.

MSD will automatically pay the Winter Energy Payment to Seniors and people on benefits, and we’ll also pay Best Start for people receiving Jobseeker Support, Sole Parent Support, Young Parent Payment, Supported Living Payment or Emergency Benefit.

The changes to Accommodation Supplement and Accommodation Benefit will also be paid automatically from 1 April 2018.
