Universal Credit

Universal credit is a maze. This new guide is DR UK's essential guide to finding your way through that maze, written by our in-house benefits experts. It will help you maximise income for yourself and your clients and avoid the pitfalls – such as having your benefit sanctioned. 

The guide covers:

  • The qualifying criteria
  • How you claim
  • Help with housing costs
  • The work capability assessment
  • Your responsibilities
  • How universal credit is paid
  • Moving from legacy benefits
  • How to appeal

A new version of the guide has been published in April, fully updated for 2023/24 and is available to download now.

Formatted printed copies are available to pre-order from our online shop or by adding to cart below for delivery in May 2023:
