Universal Credit is changing in October 2021


Summary (optional)
start content

The UK Government Universal Credit COVID Uplift is being phased out in September 2021. After this date, the £20 per week (£86.67 per month) uplift will no longer be paid within your Universal Credit entitlement, so your payment will be reduced.

It is important that you start thinking about how this will affect you and your family. Support to help you manage this change is available from:
