Are you prepared for Universal Credit?

Universal Credit is the new benefit for people of working age. It will eventually replace six existing benefits. People who are currently getting benefits with no changes in circumstances will stay on their existing benefits until be migrated over to Universal Credit. This is not likely to start until 2017.

Single people , living in New Forest District ,who are first time claimants will start to claim Universal Credit from December 2015.

If you are a working aged person living in the New Forest help us prepare for this move to Universal Credit by completing this short online survey.

If you submit your survey before 30.4.2015 you could win a iPad donnated by Lymington firm Embescom. The survey is being carried out by New Forest District Council in partnership with the New Forest Advice Network.
