Universal Credit is the new benefit administered by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), for working age people on a low income or unemployed. Universal Credit is different from any benefits or tax credits you may currently receive, and you must be ready to manage your claim online.
Universal Credit replaces these six benefits:
- Child Tax Credit
- Working Tax Credit
- Housing Benefit
- Income Support
- Income-Based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
- Income-Related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
Work out what you’re entitled to using a benefits calculator.
