If you live in Warrington, you can make a claim for Universal Credit if you are making a new claim for Job Seekers Allowance (JSA), Income Support, Employment Support Allowance (ESA) or Housing Benefit.
You will also be transferred to Universal Credit if you have a change of circumstances that affects your Income Support, JSA or ESA.
Housing benefit can only be claimed by pensioners, people living in supported exempt accommodation (if you have care, support or supervision included in your tenancy agreement), living in temporary accommodation, or have the Severe Disability Premium included in your current benefit payments.
Council tax support is not included in your Universal Credit. You must complete a separate claim to receive help to pay your council tax.
Find out more about claiming Universal Credit on the government's website.
