Support for Mortgage Interest

From April 2018, Support for Mortgage Interest (SMI) is to be paid as a loan instead of a benefit for new and existing claimants.  Current claimants will be invited to apply for a loan if they want to continue to be supported.  Loans will be repaid with interest upon the sale of a claimant's house, or when they return to work if they can afford it.
