Universal Credit

Universal Credit is a new benefit that is being introduced by the government to replace six existing benefits with a single monthly payment. It started in Middlesbrough in October 2018.

Universal Credit is replacing:

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

If you claim any of these benefits, you may be asked to claim Universal Credit.
