Update your Universal Credit claim

Universal Credit (1)

Do you receive Universal Credit?

To avoid any issues with payment, you need to verify your rent and service charges as soon as possible. These costs will have changed since 1 April 2024.

How do I do this?

Please update your claim through the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). You can do so via your Universal Credit account.
