Universal credit is the biggest change to our social security system in over sixty years, affecting millions of people with children or on a low income and now fully rolled out across the country. Learn what you need to know about the new benefit with the fully updated edition of our bestselling, easy-to-follow guide.

You don’t need to be an expert – with its help, you can deal with your clients’ queries. It includes all the latest rules, including its introduction and how people will be migrated from the old means-tested benefits, how to work out the amount of benefit, how to calculate earnings, the ‘two-child limit’, the work-related requirements and sanctions.

There is specific information for particular groups of people, such as lone parents and people with a disability, and the book contains dozens of examples illustrating how the rules apply in practice and plenty of tactical guidance on what to do if things go wrong.
