Universal Credit is a single monthly payment for people in or out of work.
It replaces some of the benefits and tax credits that you might be getting now:
Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
Child Tax Credit
Working Tax Credit
You may be invited to claim Universal Credit if you live in England, Scotland or Wales.
Universal Credit is due to be introduced in Northern Ireland in September 2017.
