If you are receiving Universal Credit, the temporary £20 per week coronavirus increase to your Universal Credit payment will be withdrawn as planned at the end of September.

You will be contacted by DWP to tell you when the extra £86.67 you’ve been getting each month since April 2020 will stop. If you’re not sure when your last payment will be, check your Universal Credit statement, by logging on to your online Universal Credit account at GOV.UK

If you’re worried about how this drop in income will affect how you will pay your rent, contact our income team to discuss your situation.
