Over the next few years all working age people on a low income will gradually move from their current benefits to Universal Credit.
In the Milton Keynes Council area, only people living in postcode MK43 8 (Newton Blossomville) and who have fewer than 3 children, can make a new claim for Universal Credit.
People who are already claiming Universal Credit will stay on Universal Credit.
The majority of other Milton Keynes residents will not be able to apply for Universal Credit until December 2018.
More information about who can claim Universal Credit can be found on the GOV.UK website
