Universal Credit

universal credit 2015

Over the next few years all working age people on a low income will gradually move from their current benefits to Universal Credit.

In Milton Keynes, only certain people can currently make a new claim for Universal Credit. They are;-

  • single unemployed jobseekers; and
  • working age people living in postcode MK43 8 (Newton Blossomville area), who have fewer than 3 children.

The majority of other Milton Keynes residents will not be able to apply for Universal Credit until September 2018.
