Are you ready for Universal Credit?

Published 9 November 2018

We are now less than a month away from the introduction of Universal Credit (UC) Full Service in Wakefield.

The Full Service of UC will be introduced in Wakefield from 28 November 2018  and will replace six benefits with a single monthly payment similar to a monthly working wage.

The six benefits being replaced are:

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

UC does not include help with your Council Tax. If you are claiming Universal Credit you can still contact Wakefield Council (or the local authority in your area) to apply for help with your Council Tax.

You will need to claim UC if you are making a new benefit claim and are of working age. You might also need to claim UC if your circumstances change.

Are you ready? You will need an email address, a mobile phone and a bank, building society or credit union account to receive payments.

You can find further information about Universal Credit on our website or by visiting GOV.UK

Universal Credit is a big change, but we are here to help. If you need any help with Universal Credit or your finances generally, you can contact Cash Wise through the Cash Wise website or on 01977 724651.
