The Benefits and Work forum will be closed from the evening of Friday 17 December until Monday 10 January.
The closure will allow our volunteer moderators to have a proper break over the Christmas period and hopefully return refreshed for what looks like being a challenging year ahead.
As always, we’d like to thank all our moderators for their incredibly hard and dedicated work over the last year. At times there have been a huge number of queries coming in and a desperate shortage of moderators, but they have never buckled under the strain.
We’re grateful to both our new moderators just finding their feet as well as our long-established moderators who are now veterans on the forum.
We hope they all enjoy their well-earned rest, the site would not be half the place it is without them.
There’s more details about the closure and some helpful tips on how to deal with the most common New Year problems here.
