When universal credit will be rolled out to everyone in Wales, and the people affected at Christmas

The last places in Wales to get universal credit rolled out for new claimants will see it happen this month, but existing claimants are still waiting to be switched over

The controversial universal credit is now fully rolled out to all the jobcentres in Wales.

It is the biggest change to the welfare state in a generation and is being slowly rolled out across the UK to replace six other benefits with a single monthly payment.

The roll-out for new claimants or people with altered circumstances started in Wales in April, 2017, in Flintshire, with new areas being added ever since. In November, it was extended to parts of Rhondda Cynon Taf.

It has now reached all of the country’s 59 jobcentres, including Ammanford, Bangor, Caernarfon, Carmarthen, Dolgellau, Llanelli, Porthmadog and Pwllheli, which have all joined the universal credit Live Service today.

At the moment, there area 68,136 people receiving universal credit in Wales and, by the end of the full roll-out - scheduled for 2023 - Citizens Advice estimates that over 400,000 households in Wales will be in receipt of the new benefit.
