27 September 2007

Benefits and Work is currently overhauling our website. We hope the changes will make it easier for members to access information and also make it possible for us to publish news and information more rapidly.

At some point over the next few weeks the look of the website will alter and the way that visitors access Members only material will also change. If you are a member you should receive an email letting you know how the new access system works.

One of the big advantages of the new system is that you will be able to retrieve a lost password, and change your password, automatically. It will also be possible for new members to get instant access to the site.

The new system will also allow people to contribute material to the site much more easily - something that all of you who expressed an interest in freelance writing and are still waiting for something to happen may be pleased to hear.
