 Your rights

Steps to consider now if you think your job may be under threat. Your rights at work if you are going through redundancy.

Your options

Reviewing your CV and applying for new job, plus other options you might consider, from retraining or starting your own business to apprenticeships and early retirement.


How your State Pension rights are protected, and benefits you may be able to claim now, such as Jobseeke's Allowance, tax credits, Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit.

Managing money

Making sure you are claiming all the income and insurance payouts you are entitled to, dealing with bills and your rent or mortgage, and what to do if debts become a problem.

Useful contacts
