Universal Credit is the new means tested benefit that replaces six in-work and out of work benefits. We have listened to Universal Credit claimants and the agencies supporting them, and heard their worries about the complexity of the application process. In response, we have developed this short course, to help individuals as Universal Credit rolls out across the UK.
UC Savvy is a short course designed to help people understand and negotiate some of the complexities of Universal Credit, with signposting to professional advice.
UC Savvy complements Cash Smart Credit Savvy and many UC claimants will find the information and activities in the 5 CSCS modules, particularly Building a Budget, very helpful as they negotiate the transition to a new benefit.
