What do you know about Universal Credit?

Universal Credit is a payment to help with your living costs and it's paid once a month directly into your bank account. It is replacing the six following benefits:

  • Housing Benefit
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Job Seekers Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support (ESA)
  • Child Tax Credit
  • Working Tax Credit

You may be able to get it if you're out of work or are on a low income. You can't claim Universal Credit at the same time as any of the listed benefits. It's being rolled out in Rhondda Cynon Taff in November 2018.
