In April 2020 the UK Government increased Universal Credit for all claimants by £20 per week, this was done as an increase in the Standard Allowance. The Government had previously announced that this would end in September 2021, despite some last minute changes to previous dates that it was due to end, it now looks definite that the last increased payment will be in September 2021. Universal Credit claimants have started to receive notifications on their online journal confirming when the last increased payment will be. This will undoubtedly cause some hardship amongst our tenants. If you need help and advice please contact our Advice Team on firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on 0141 889 7105.
