Universal credit changes

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government implemented a temporary £20 increase to universal credit to help elevate the negative financial effects caused during lockdown.

However, this scheme is due to officially end on 6 October and will therefore mean, if you claim Universal Credit, you may find yourself receiving less money.
