2. Who will get Universal Credit?

Universal Credit is being introduced in East Devon from 9 November 2015.

Initially it will only be paid to

  • some single people between the ages of 18 and 60
  • who would previously be making a new JSA claim
  • who also meet certain conditions.


You do not need to do anything if you are already claiming benefits as you will be told when Universal Credit will affect you.
