WELFARE BENEFITS & SOCIAL SECURITY LAW

WELFARE BENEFITS & SOCIAL SECURITY LAW

Advisers at Bari Law Associate provide assistance on WELFARE BENEFITS & SOCIAL SECURITY LAWs.

Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

is a benefit designed to meet the extra costs of having long-term ill-health or a disability, including daily living and mobility needs.

Universal Credit

Universal Credit (UC) is a single monthly payment for people in or out of work and under State Pension Age. Universal Credit will eventually replace a range of other welfare benefits including Housing Benefit, Working Tax Credit, income-related Employment and Support Allowance and Income Support.

From January 2019, everyone making a new claim for means-tested welfare benefits, including Employment and Support Allowance, will have to make a claim to Universal Credit instead. If you are currently claiming an old welfare benefit, you do not need to do anything until the Department for Work and Pensions contacts you to ask you to claim Universal Credit, unless something about your current claim changes. If it does, you then may be asked to make a claim for Universal Credit.
