Universal credit claims - rent changes


If you are claiming Universal Credit you will need to tell them about any rent increases applied in April. You should have received a ‘to do’ from Universal Credit asking you to update your rent if it changed. If you have completed your ‘to do’ in good time you will see this in your next payment.

With Universal Credit calculating rents monthly and most landlords charging rents weekly, it can get confusing. If you are unsure if your Universal Credit award is right, you can use a benefit calculator. Or you can contact our welfare benefits officer to ask for help in making sure you are receiving all the benefits you are entitled to. You can reach them by calling the service hub on 0207 922 5300.
