Univeral Credit- Your experiences as a claimant, or with supporting claimants in Scotland

Are you a Universal Credit claimant from Scotland? Have you or your organisation ever supported Universal Credit claimants in Scotland? If so, join in with the next stage of our inquiry and tell us about your experience.

The Work and Pensions Committee has an ongoing programme of work on Universal Credit, looking at various issues in the system and what can be done to address them.

On Wednesday 24 January, the House of Commons Work and Pensions Committee will be hearing from the Scottish Social Security Minister on Universal Credit (UC) in Scotland.

The Committee will be asking the Minister about Scottish “flexibilities” in UC which include, allowing claimants to receive their payments two weekly rather than monthly, and allowing the option to have their UC paid straight to their landlord.
