Policy in Practice have had many enquiries from people about how Universal Credit will affect them.
This post is here to collect case studies of Universal Credit – your stories and questions. We want to create a forum for people to discuss their issues and develop a resource for people to find guidance on welfare reform.
We cannot provide advice on a case-by-case basis, but will help to clarify the regulations. If you are concerned about how you will be affected by any of the welfare changes, it is best to also contact your Local Authority and/or Job Centre as they will be able to comment on your specific circumstances.
Before posting, please first read the FAQ to make sure that your question has not been answered there. You can also search this page (Ctrl+f) to see if your question has already been answered.
