What is Universal Credit?

Universal Credit (UC) is a single benefit that replaces the following:

  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-based Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Working Tax Credits
  • Child Tax Credits
  • Housing Benefit

With Universal Credit, the Government wants to encourage more people into work and earning more money so there will be fewer people in the UK living in poverty. The Government has tried to make the system simple to help people understand what they are entitled to and make the claiming process easier.
