star this property answer text <p /> <p>Ahead of the introduction of the new State Pension in April 2016, we are specifically encouraging people to find out how they could increase their new State Pension, including through National Insurance credits. This includes encouraging people who are eligible but may not be claiming carer’s credits at the moment. We are working with the media, local authorities, the NHS, voluntary organisations and charities, including carers’ organisations to promote material, including fact sheets and videos, ensuring the right information and advice is available on carer’s credits.</p><p> </p><p>The Department does not hold information that would allow us to identify individuals who might be eligible for the carer’s credit. We use a range of methods to signpost the carer’s credit to individuals who contact us about other benefits who might be potentially eligible, including when someone has claimed but is not entitled to Carer’s Allowance. Departmental officials promote the carer’s credit at carers’ events, including Carer’s Week, and amongst support organisations. Information on the credits is available on the government’s website GOV.UK and also on carers’ organisations websites.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>Since April 2012 Jobcentre Plus has been supporting claimants potentially affected by the benefit cap to ensure they receive the help they need to move closer to the labour market. Management Information was collected from pre-implementation in May 2012 to November 2013 showing approximately 35,800 people living in potentially capped households had accepted an offer of support. More recent information on the number of people living in capped households who have received employment support and on how many of them have moved into work is not readily available but employment support continues to be available.</p><p>Since the cap was introduced in April 2013, more than 16,000 previously capped households have entered work, as defined by an open Working Tax Credit claim. A suite of evaluation was published on 15 December 2014 finding those affected by the benefit cap were 41 per cent more likely to go into work, as defined by having an open Working Tax Credit claim, than a similar group with benefit entitlement just under the cap level. 38 per cent of those capped said they were doing more to find work.</p>
