The government has recently announced its plans to resume the process of helping any remaining legacy benefit claimants move to Universal Credit (UC), following a brief postponement due to Covid-19.

This will apply to you if you currently claim any of the below legacy benefits:

  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Housing Benefit
  • Child Tax Credit
  • Working Tax Credit.

Anyone receiving a legacy benefit will need to move to UC, with the current deadline being December 2024.
