Testing times for Universal Credit

Post by Mary_FV on Thu Jul 06, 2017 5:05 pm

In 2010 the Coalition Government set out plans for a Universal Credit (UC) to replace existing means-tested benefits and tax credits for people of working age. UC would, it claimed, cut through the complexity of the existing benefit system; ensure that work always paid; make it easier for people to get the help they need, when they need it; reduce administration costs; and bear down on fraud and error.

Seven years later, a number of issues have emerged for claimants. Although some of them may be teething problems, there is some concern that others may reflect more fundamental aspects of UC policy.
