<p>Over the next four years the Scottish Government will take on delivery of a number of benefits including some that will replace benefits currently delivered by UK Government and a number of entirely new benefits created by the Scottish Government.</p>

<p>These benefits will be for people on low incomes, disabled people, carers, young people entering the workplace and to help people heat their homes.</p>

<p>The Scottish Government has established Social Security Scotland to administer these benefits.</p>

<p>The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and local authorities will also continue to deliver some benefits in Scotland.</p>

<p>Social Security Scotland will put dignity, fairness and respect at the heart of everything we do.</p>
