Universal Credit – It could be YOU!

Email a friend or
 colleague about this page.

The government are gradually introducing a new benefit called Universal Credit to replace means tested benefits for working age people.  So if you are getting any of the benefits listed below YOUR BENEFITS ARE CHANGING.

Universal Credit will replace:

  • Housing Benefit
  • Income Support
  • Child Tax Credit
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Income Related Employment And Support Allowance

It will be paid monthly to you, in arrears, as one single payment and any help you get with your rent will be included in this payment.  You will have to apply and manage your Universal Credit online and you will have to make sure your rent is paid as your Housing Benefit will stop.

We expect that most tenants will have to claim Universal Credit by 2016 and should start thinking NOW about how they will manage.

We will be contacting all tenants over the next few months who may be affected to make sure you get all the help and practical support you might need about bank accounts, budgeting and access to the internet to make and manage your claim for Universal Credit.

If you you would like more information on Universal Credit please click here.
