Universal Credit has now been in place since October 2018, if you want to make a new claim for benefits you will need to claim Universal Credit.
Universal Credit is the single monthly payment to help you with your living costs, including your rent and will replace the six existing benefits (Jobseeker’s Allowance, Housing Benefit, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Income Support and Employment and Support Allowance) for working age claimants.
For those who are already receiving any of the above benefits and you have a change in circumstances, for example if you lose your job, become a parent or part of a couple you will be advised to claim Universal Credit.
