About this course

New Zealand has a great range of benefits to help you when you’re unable to earn an income or are struggling on your current income. However benefits are only designed to cover the absolute essentials and life is often more complex than your benefit allows for. It’s not surprising then that you may run into financial trouble while on a benefit.

By the end of this course you will understand how Work and Income can help you and how you can make the most of their provisions.

You’ll understand:

  • The range of benefits available to Kiwis

This course will take you around 60 minutes.

Is this course for me?
