However, these changes are not expected to take effect until the autumn.Note: claimants with three or more dependent children cannot new claim for Universal Credit - they will have to claim 'legacy' benefits instead - this will apply until 31 January 2019. Families with three or more children already on Universal Credit will remain on UC. UC is also available in certain specified postcodes in Northern Ireland - these areas are not covered by this map.
