Coronavirus Impact Report

Coronavirus Impact Report (July 2020) from Citizens Advice Derbyshire Districts - Coronavirus and Universal Credit.

Universal Credit is one of the biggest changes ever made to the benefits system. But while it may be working for many, there is a significant number of people who are having problems. Since the outbreak of coronavirus (Covid-19), nearly 1 million people made Universal Credit claims in the last two weeks of March alone and currently there are over 5 million claimants. It is now more important than ever that the benefits system - including Universal Credit - provides enough to live on and that people are paid quickly and efficiently.
