What is Universal Credit
and how does it affect me?

Universal Credit is a means-tested benefit for people of working-age who are on a low income. It replaces six existing means-tested benefits and is intended to be simpler than the current system of benefits and tax credits.

Most claims will need to be made online. You will also need an email address to register your claim and a bank account to receive payments. Universal Credit is paid monthly in arrears, so you’ll have to wait one calendar month from the date you submitted your claim before your first UC payment is made.
