Universal Credit is now live in North Lincolnshire. The majority of Working Age people who are making a new claim for benefits will have to claim Universal Credit (UC) from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). If you live in rented accommodation your housing costs may be funded by Universal Credit.
Since 16 January 2019 existing claimants entitled to an award of an existing benefit that includes Severe Disability premium are prevented from naturally mirgrating to Universal Credit. If you think this is you, please seek advice.
Since 1 February 2019 the Housing Benefit gateway for households with 3 or more children will be closed. All new claims will be signposted to Universal Credit to make a claim. If you need advice, please call 08003285644
