Universal Credit Areas (by September 2017)

(Show June 2017)
The map shows the areas where Universal Credit can be claimed by different claimant groups by the end of September 2017. In many areas (apart from those shown in pink on the map) only a limited group of claimants can apply for Universal Credit - see below-right. Click on the map to view the relevant postcodes and start dates. (Note: details may be subject to revision/correction; only approximate areas are shown. Start dates, areas and case-mix shown are based on information available on 26 May 2017 and may change. Areas moving to the full service during July-Sep 2017 are outlined in grey. )
Note: from 6 April 2017 claimants with three or more dependent children are not be able to make a new claim for Universal Credit - they will have to claim 'legacy' benefits instead. This rule will apply in all areas (both 'live' and 'full' service). Families with three or more children already on Universal Credit will remain on Universal Credit
