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.
