Universal Credit is a monthly payment that replaces some other benefits (administered by the DWP – Department for Work & Pensions).
At present, in Adur and Worthing Universal Credit only affects single people without responsibility for children who have recently become unemployed. People who are in couples or part of a family will not be affected at the moment but Universal Credit will be introduced for residents throughout Adur and Worthing making a new Benefit claim from October 2017 onwards.
