With the introduction of Universal Credit it is not an easy task to work out how much you'll receive each month.

Depending on what type of disability you have and how many children you have, it can make a big difference to how much you will have to live on.

Universal Credit, which replaces six other benefits with one monthly payment, was fully rolled out in Hull in December.

After December 12, anyone making a new claim for benefits in Hull would have to claim Universal Credit (with some exceptions).

Some people in Hull who were receiving Universal Credit before then have told how they didn't receive payments for several weeks or their income dropped below what they expected.
What is Universal Credit?

This is a new benefit designed to help people with their living costs. It is paid monthly and will replace a number of benefits which are being taken out of the equation in a bid to streamline the system.

It replaces Child Tax Credit, Housing Benefit, Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA), income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and Working Tax Credit.

Anyone who makes a new claim for benefits will be applying for Universal Credit unless:

you are of State Pension Age. Find out when you will reach Pension age on the Gov.uk website
you have been placed in temporary accommodation by the council
you live in accommodation receive care and support as part of living in your home
you have three or more dependent children (not including foster children) living with you and you have not received Universal Credit within the last six month

The Government plans to start transferring people who are still on existing benefits or tax credits onto Universal Credit from July 2019. They plan to complete this process by March 2022.

Now I appear to remember at the very start of this utter UC "Shambles" It was going to be Completed 2017/2018 and SAVE Money;
so on this latest "2022" completion (If it happens by then) it will be running 4 - 5 years Late, and at a cost OVERSPEND of Billion's,
OK Now at the Death Rate UC has caused thousands of the poorest and most vulnerable people in Britain. This causing a sharp rise in costs and spending by the NHS,
Now add the huge Extra Costs has caused Our Underfunded & Vastly Overstretched Mental Health Departments.
And the Conservative Government STILL CLAIMS, UC will make the system simply and Save Money :ohmy:
Who is lying & trying to kid Who ?. :angry:
