Understanding Universal Credit

Add to My Shortlist

DWP has launched a new website with clear content and easy to follow navigation, to help people understand what Universal Credit means for them. 

The site helps people find out what benefits they should be claiming, and provides more detail about how Universal Credit (UC) can help them move into, or progress in work. 

There is also a section for organisations who advise their customers about Universal Credit.

Customers should still continue to claim Universal Credit via GOV.UK
