  • DWP - boost employment, finances and well-being for over 50s

    Created: 28/07/2022

    The Government has announced £22 million will be invested in new measures to tackle unemployment among the over 50s on benefits.        

    Jobseekers aged 50 and over will have more one-to-one support at Jobcentres to help them get into and progress in work, boosting their earnings ahead of retirement.

    This increased support includes the appointment of 37 50PLUS Champions, across all UK, to work with local employers to showcase the benefits of employing older workers.

    Mid-life MOTs will also start to be available in Jobcentres, targeting workers in their 40s and 50s. They will help people take stock of their finances, skills and health, enabling them to be better prepared for retirement and to build financial resilience.
