Universal Credit replaced the benefit system in May 2015.
You don’t need to do anything if you’re already claiming any benefits - you’ll be told when Universal Credit will affect you.
The aim is to simplify the benefits system.
It will bring together a range of working-age benefits which will be made in one single payment.
