Important action for residents receiving Universal Credit

Following the letter we sent all residents in February 2019 regarding the changes to rent from 1 April, all residents who claim Universal Credit will need to inform the DWP of this change to their housing costs.

It is your responsibility to let the DWP know about any rent and service charge changes via your Universal Credit journal.

The DWP will be posting a reminder from 3 April 2019.

Simply look for the message from the DWP asking you:

  • Has your rent or service charge changed?
  • Do you wish to report any other changes to your housing?
  • When did your rent or service charge change?

    …then follow the prompts.
