Benefits may be cut if you quit without reason

PEOPLE who quit their jobs without a genuine reason could face benefits cuts in an attempt to stop people draining the welfare system.
Social Security Minister Francis Le Gresley has announced a plan to make people who leave employment without a sufficiently good reason wait before claiming all of their benefits.
Under the plan, an adult would lose out on the personal component of their benefits, which is worth £92.12 per week, but would not see any reduction in housing or child payments.
The reduction would apply for a limited time – at least until a person could prove they were actively seeking work.
