Introduction

Universal credit has sprung into prominence recently with the hardship caused because of the effects of the COVID-19 crisis.

It was designed as the benefit of last resort for those in need and took over from other principal means-tested benefits. As such, it has attracted considerable criticism, largely due to what is perceived as an unfeeling approach by officialdom.

This webinar aims to look at what universal credit actually does, and what it does not do.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • Where it comes from - benefits taken over by universal credit. The place of universal credit within the benefit system as a whole.
  • Who qualifies for it?
  • Transfer from other benefits and qualifying conditions i.e. age, family, place of residence, immigration status, capital restrictions.
  • How it works. How the benefit is calculated and how it changes with changed circumstances. Claimant commitments. Restrictions and sanctions. Note - detailed calculations will not be made because of limited time.
  • Temporary changes to the system caused by the coronavirus pandemic and who will qualify (and who will not) as a result.
  • The future of universal credit.
