Universal Credit

Please join us to find out more about Universal Credit and how it could affect you at our drop-in session on Tuesday 1 May 2018, 10am - 2pm at Wombourne Library, Church Road, Wombourne, WV5 9EZ

Universal Credit is a new benefit which brings together six benefits and replaces them with a single monthly payment. It is a working age benefit for those who are either out of work or in work and on a low income.

Universal Credit will replace:

  • Income-based Job Seeker’s Allowance

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Income Support

  • Working Tax Credit

  • Child Tax Credit

  • Housing Benefit

Any benefits you receive which are not in the list above will continue to be paid separately – for example Child Benefit, Carer’s Allowance and the Personal Independence Payment.
