Financial impacts of welfare reform: illustrative working age case studies

Paper that outlines some of the changes from the UK government's welfare reforms, and sets out their financial impacts through case studies of hypothetical working age households.

It seeks to inform Scottish Government work on welfare reform mitigation by illustrating the kinds of specific impacts the various reforms are having, and identifying potential 'winners and losers' of the reforms.
