State Benefits and Volunteering
- There are two important things to remember about volunteering while you are receiving state benefits:-
- You are free to volunteer as long as the work you do is unpaid (apart from out of pocket expenses) and you meet the rules of your benefit. It’s always worth checking with your benefits adviser before you start volunteering.
- Volunteering is not something you can be forced to do – it’s your choice.
