Changes to Universal Credit

The current increase in Universal Credit and Working Tax Credit of £20 per week, that has been paid throughout the pandemic, is due to stop at the end of September.

Please note that if you receive these benefits your income will reduce by £20 per week, or £86.67 per month before October 2021.

There is ongoing work taking place to try and encourage the Government to keep the uplift but at the moment this reduction is due to come into force at the end of September 2021.

If you require any help with budgeting to get used to this reduction in your income please contact the Rents Team on 01492 572727.
