Universal Credit is replacing the following benefits with a single monthly payment
- Child Tax Credit
- Housing Benefit
- Income Support
- income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
- Working Tax Credit
If you currently receive any of these benefits, generally you cannot claim Universal Credit at the same time but there are exceptions where Housing Benefit is still payable.
