UNIVERSAL CREDIT HAS STARTED IN SWANSEA

On 20th July 2015 Universal Credit arrived in Swansea.


It will initially be for new claimants of JSA and won't include anyone who is in receipt of Housing Benefit. Although this not always going to be the case. At some point in time it will be rolled out to other benefits besides JSA and will eventually include those on Housing Benefit.


If you are experiencing difficulties in maintaining your home as a result of the benefits you currently receive or under the monthly Universal Credit, please contact Housing Options for further help and advice to support you in your home.
