βœ… We are doing whatever is necessary to ensure people are supported through these unprecedented times. That is why #UniversalCredit is rising by Β£1,040 a year – and Working Tax Credit is going up, too.

βœ… We are providing more support for benefit claimants in the Private Rented Sector by increasing Local Housing Allowance rates, helping to alleviate affordability challenges.

βœ… We are temporarily relaxing the Minimum Income Floor for all self-employed Universal Credit claimants affected by COVID-19. This means if your earnings drop, your UC payment will rise to top them up.
