Q. What is this type of credit?
Universal Credit is a new government benefit that is aimed towards those individuals who are currently unemployed or who are on a low income. Below is an overview explaining what Universal Credit is and how you can apply. Further details can be found by calling the helpline number that is operated by the DWP (Disability Work and Pensions).

Universal Credit, is slowly being introduced to different parts of the country and will be made available to those who are currently unemployed. Eventually, the benefit will group together and replace the following benefits and tax credits, into just one monthly payment.

  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance.
  • Income Support.
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance.
  • Child Tax Credit.
  • Working Tax Credit.
  • Housing Benefit.

Q. How are payments made?

You can be paid in several ways.
Monthly into your bank account of your choice.
If you already receive help paying your rent, then this payment will be included in your payment.
If you or your partner are both receiving this benefit, you will receive one joint monthly payment.

Q. How do I claim if I am on a low income?

Firstly, there are no limits on how many hours you need to work in order to claim Universal Credit. The rule here is the more that you earn, the fewer benefits you will receive. You can find more information about the amount you can claim by calling the helpline below. Or by filling in the online calculator on the gov.uk website.

Q. How do I claim if I have been made unemployed?

If you are recently unemployed or have been unemployed for some time. Live in one of the areas that are currently offering Universal Credit. Then you may have to start a claim as opposed to Job Seekers Allowance. Again, the gov.uk website will have more information and lists job centres across the country that are already offering this benefit.
