Changes to universal credit - Coastal Housing Group

In April 2020 a Universal Credit (UC) temporary increase of £20 per week was brought in by the UK Government. This increased the standard allowance of Universal Credit by £86.67 every month. If you claim UC, you should be aware that this amount is temporary. It was added due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The additional amount will stop after September 2021 and your UC could reduce by £86.67 per month.

We are here to help, please contact us if this change impacts you.
