Universal Credit information
Universal Credit has undergone some changes and as of January 2015 Jobseekers with children (familes) can now make new claims. Only specific groups of jobseekers are able to claim Universal Credit. See the attached Information Leaflet for further details.
All Housing Benefit claimants will be migrating over to Universal Credit. DWP have launched a new guide 'Universal Credit and You' which gives an introduction to UC for people who are claiming it. It covers lots of useful information for both claimants and support staff. Details can be found here.
