Universal Credit

arrives in North Lincs!

L

ater this year, there will be major changes to the way

you claim benefits. The Government's new benefit

called Universal Credit (UC) will be rolled out in full.

This means that anyone who needs to claim benefits for

the first time or is currently claiming benefits and has

a change in their circumstances will have to claim UC.

Anybody claiming UC will have to do it online,

and they must have a bank account and an

email address.

Would you like to know more about Universal Credit?

Visit www.gov.uk/universal-credit

The most important thing for you to know is that if

you claim UC, you will have to pay your rent

personally rather than have it paid to us

automatically by housing benefit. If you do not

pay your rent, you are at risk of losing your home. Please

get in touch to discuss any difficulties you have with

paying your rent.
