Universal Credit full roll-out

The full area by area roll-out of Universal Credit has now been published and plans can be properly made for dealing with the consequences. Below, I’ve presented the monthly roll-out schedule by local authority area (other than the initial pilots which are still listed by Jobcentre). As the roll-out is by Jobcentre, some councils are listed more than once if Jobcentres in their area go live at different times.

This roll-out is for the Universal Credit full digital service for new claims. Anyone making a new claim to any of the six benefits that are being replaced (Jobseeker’s Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support, Housing Benefit, Working Tax Credit or Child Tax Credit) will instead have to claim Universal Credit.

Less well known is that anyone in an area that goes live who has a relevant change of circumstance (such as getting a job, moving house or having a partner move in) will move on to Universal Credit with no protection if they lose out. Now we have the full time-frame, we know exactly how long people have to claim before the benefits system we have is gone for them forever. With over three million people set to be worse off under Universal Credit, there are perilous times ahead for many people.

Search the list below for the local authorities you are interested in and start planning for the big change over!
