Working age benefits

IFS research on working age benefits focuses on assessing the impact of reforms such as:

  • Universal Credit
  • The localisation of council tax support
  • Reductions in private sector housing benefit
  • Welfare-to-work schemes

 Researchers also analyse the coherence and effectiveness of the benefits system as a whole.
