Universal Credit Budget: 2018Make Text Bigger
Following the Autumn Budget 2018 HM Treasury have now published a policy paper called Universal Credit: Budget Brief.
In the document you will find information on the announced £1000 increase in work allowances as well as the additional support for those who will be transitioning onto the new benefit:
- From April 2019 Universal Credit (UC) claimants will benefit from a £1,000 increase in work allowances. Working parents and people with disabilities on UC will be £630 better off every year as a result of this change.
- Building on policy changes announced by the government in June, claimants will also benefit from additional support as they move onto UC.
- In response to lessons from the roll-out of UC to date, and to facilitate the delivery of this package, managed migration will now conclude in December 2023.
