Tax Credits and other benefits

Information about Tax Credits, what is available and who can apply, can be found at gov.uk/taxcredits 

For more information about other benefits available from the Department of Work & Pensions please use gov.uk/benefits.

The Department for Work and Pensions will be rolling out Universal Credit to more Teignbridge residents from 5 September 2018.

Universal Credit replaces the following working age benefits :

  • Income Support
  • Jobseekers Allowance (Income based)
  • Employment and Support allowance (Income based)
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Child Tax Credit

If you currently receive any of these benefits, you will be transferred to Universal Credit as part of a managed process by 2022. You may be transferred sooner if there is a change to one of your benefits or if you need to make a new claim. You will receive a letter if you are affected by the change to Universal Credit.
