Universal Credit: 2 Feb 2011: Written answers and statements

 

 

Universal credit will consist of a basic personal allowance with additional amounts for disability, caring responsibilities, housing costs and children.

We are looking at what extra support may be needed for disabled people in universal credit. At the same time we will consider the structure of support for disabled children.

We are reviewing whether changes to carer’s allowance will be necessary to take account of the introduction of universal credit.

Finally we are considering how best to support pensioners with the cost of rent and dependent children and plan to make some changes to pension credit. These changes will consolidate support for rent with the help available for other housing costs within pension credit, and add a further element to provide income-related help for pensioners with dependent children.
