Winter updates for Universal Credit

As we head into winter, for many whether to put on the heating becomes an issue.

There are several payments and discount schemes you may not know about and you could be eligible for. It is important that you contact your energy supplier or the DWP for further information about these schemes listed here.

Those who receive Universal Credit on the public holidays or December 25th, 26th and January 1st should be aware that they can expect their payments a day earlier.
