Universal Credit managed migration is due to start over the coming year, if you get a letter from Universal Credit to say that you are moving onto Universal Credit then this must be applied for within 3 months or you will lose your benefit. 
Please contact Angela for any advice or help needed. 

Rent Increases and Universal Credit

If you are a Universal Credit Claimant you will be expected to verify the amount of your new rent charge. If you do not, your housing cost element will be paid at the old rent charge until you do.

You can update the new rent charge in your UC online Journal.

Please refer to our latest leaflet for the most recent news on Universal Credit.
