Universal Credit

Universal Credit is a new type of benefit payment for people who are out of work or on a low income. It is replacing six other old-style benefits including housing benefit, income support and income-based jobseeker's allowance. Announced in 2010, introduced in 2013 and fully implemented by 2017, it has come in for criticism for causing financial hardship because of payment delays and administrative errors
