Bereaved universal credit families face over-payment debt threat

Post by Admin on Tue Jul 24, 2018 2:02 pm

If a Universal Credit claimant dies, regardless of when, they are classed as having died from the start of their four week assessment period.

The government claim they value “evidence-based policy”. However, no-one knows exactly what evidence was found to justify Universal Credit, or how and why it may be applied to dismantling publicly funded social security provision for the public.

A grieving family have been forced to pay their loved one’s rent for three weeks following his death. Ronnie Cowan, the MP for Inverclyde, has spoken out in parliament about the shocking treatment of one of his constituents because of callous Universal Credit rules concerning bereavement.
