Income Support (Prescribed Categories of Person) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2009 come into force

Implementation date: 30 December 2009

The Regulations prescribe that individuals in Northern Ireland whose entitlement to income support on non-disability grounds has come to an end, cannot claim income support if they have a health condition or disability. Instead, they can make a claim for employment and support allowance. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
