Bournemouth Council

What is Universal Credit replacing

Universal Credit is part of the government’s Welfare Reform. It is a new benefit that is replacing the six existing benefits.

Universal Credit is replacing:

  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Child Tax Credit
  • Housing Benefit

Bournemouth Job Centre will start taking claims for Universal Credit from a small group of claimants on 29 June 2015.

If you need help with paying your Council Tax bill, you still need to claim Council Tax Reduction.
