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.
