Universal Credit Introduced Across Manchester

Information from the Manchester City Council on how to claim Universal Credit, which brings together some existing benefits such as housing benefit and tax credits.

From late 2017, Universal Credit Full Service is being introduced across Manchester for new benefit claims, and for existing benefit claimants who have a change in circumstances that affects what they are entitled to. The date this applies depends on where you live in Manchester. If you already claim Universal Credit Live Service, you’ll need to reapply for Universal Credit Full Service. The Department for Work and Pensions will write to you and let you know when you need to reapply. Don’t ignore the letters or you could end up losing your benefits.

Universal Credit is a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) benefit delivered by Jobcentre Plus. It’s a single monthly payment to help with your living costs and you may be able to get it if you’re on a low income or out of work.

To learn more please read the Universal Credit Booklet.
