The general information is that no-one will be better off under Universal Credit. They have had to delay the whole system due to loads of IT glitches so as of yet there is not a definite on anything to do with it.

People who are already in receipt of benefits will be left for 2 weeks with no income due to UC being paid monthly..... It is another Government fiasco.

I've just checked the tax credit website as I only get very little child tax and it says it'll take up to 4 years before child tax credit stops so I'm not going to worry about itsmile

The only people who will be better off under UC are those who don't currently work but then move into work.

The figures on amounts of money will not be changing unless your subject to one of the reforms coming in.
