Event Details

Introduction to Cross Border Issues and the Social Welfare System in Northern Ireland

Aim

The course will introduce participants to the social welfare system in Northern Ireland, emphasising the impact of planned welfare reforms. It will also briefly explain issues relevant to cross border workers and families; cross border taxation, healthcare, social welfare and retirement.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this course participants should be able to:

  • answer general social welfare enquiries relevant to Northern Ireland
  • outline the planned Welfare Reform changes and briefly explain Universal Credit and Personal Independence Payment
  • explain how working or living across the border can affect social welfare payments, pensions, taxation obligations and where to access to healthcare
  • accurately signpost individuals to organisations that can process their cross border enquiry e.g. Tax Credits Helpline in Northern Ireland 

 

This training is provided as part of the Border People project (www.borderpeople.info) managed by the Centre for Cross Border Studies in collaboration with the North South Ministerial Council, the Citizens Information Board and Citizens Advice Northern Ireland.

The project is part-financed by the European Union’s INTERREG IVA programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
