A few months ago we told you that Universal Credit may roll out in our Neighbourhoods in Autumn this year. We have now been advised that it is likely to roll out in Speke and Garston towards the end of October 2014. This will only affect anyone who is a single claimant or a couple making a claim for Universal Credit for the first time.
If this is you, then it is important that you have a bank account to ensure your payments from the Department of Working Pensions can make your payments direct.
We will be contacting all those who we think may be affected over the next couple of weeks and will keep you updated on our website and social media sites.
It is vital that you contact us immediately if you are going to claim Universal Credit as you will be responsible for paying your rent direct to us. If you have any concerns or need advice in the meantime, please get in touch.
