Changes to benefits system
Universal Credit will be introduced by the government over the coming months and this will replace a number of existing benefits and credits that qualify for the Leisure Saver Scheme. The transition from the current system of benefits and tax credits to Universal Credit will be gradual and it is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
During the changeover period the current criteria for membership of the Leisure Saver Scheme will still be accepted alongside the new Universal Credit in order to qualify for the Leisure Scheme. As the existing benefit system is phased out all members of the Leisure Saver Scheme will eventually need to be eligible for Universal Credit in order to qualify.
