A benefit impact allows people on benefits or low incomes to determine if they are receiving the correct entitlements.
People are supported by trained benefit advocates who amongst other things can attend appointments with them, at their local WINZ office.
Benefit Impacts continue to deliver an essential support for individuals and families on benefits and low incomes; it can often be a daily challenge for people to feel confident they are receiving their full benefit entitlements.
