Universal Credit Phone Number

Universal Credit Phone Number 0843 455 0035.

Universal Credit NumberUniversal Credit phone number, has been shortened to Universal Credit. Universal Credit is set to replace a rag tag group of other benefits that are currently in place.

The new system is aimed at smoothing out the process of going back to work, without the benefactor feeling that they will be punished by having their money stopped for going back to work, and having to wait for their claim to be reviewed, if they are still not earning enough money to cover all their needs.

Under the Universal Credits system people will be able to go back to work and continue to receive Universal Credits, although at a somewhat reduced amounts, which will make the transitional period between being awarded the job and that satisfying first pay packet easier.

The six benefits that will be replaced by Universal Credits are: income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Income Support, Child Tax Credits, income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Working Tax Credits and Housing Benefit. These benefits have all come about at different times and under different circumstances which mean that, when taken as a whole, there are deficiencies and gaps in the system.

Universal Credit is intended to be a one-stop welfare system that will cover all the needs of the people using the system. It is also hoped that this dramatic shake-up of the system will reveal any loopholes in the welfare system that are being manipulated by the unscrupulous to claim money to which they have no right. If you are on Universal credit already or would like to know more call the Universal Credit Phone Number.

The benefit of changing to a single payment system means that the funds will be administered in a transparent and easy-to-understand manner, both for HMRC and DWP staff and for the end user.

Universal Credits will be paid monthly, into a bank account, in much the same way that regular salaries are. This will help those looking to get into work to get accustomed to handling and living on a monthly income, so there is no financial upheaval when they do go back to work. Should someone lose their job unexpectedly, Universal Credit payments will start up straight away, to cover their immediate needs, unlike the current system which requires a claim to be submitted and reviewed, which can take several weeks.

Universal Credit will be paid monthly, directly into your bank account in arrears, so this means in some cases there will be a shortfall of 2 weeks. To help you with this shortfall we have a budgeting loan schema.

Early testing of the system will begin towards the end of April, and will roll out across the country. The system is expected to be live as from June 2013 and the final implementation should be complete by 2017.

The Universal Credit Phone Number will go live only once the first claims begin to be accepted the Job Centers that are running the pilot scheme. Once it is up and running the Universal Credit phone number will begin taking calls. The helpline is not yet operational, as the staff members are still undergoing training to learn the new systems and processes.

The authorities hope that the system will be very much easier to deal with than the current systems, and may even be hoping and expecting that easier system will mean that the helpline will not instantly be inundated by confused callers trying to understand their new benefits package!

If you are already on benefits or in receipt of any of the payments mentioned above, do not worry about the changeover. The DWP will write to you and let you know when your payments will change and give you all the information you need to go forward, under the new system.
