Reminder: Please Update Your Universal Credit Journal
In January you would have received a letter to advise you of your new rent and service charges from 1 April 2019.
We would like to remind those in receipt of Universal Credit that if you haven't done so already, you need to log into your Universal Credit journal and report your new rent and service charges, as a change in your circumstances.
You must do this on 1 April 2019 or as soon as possible after this date.
A failure to do so may result in the DWP making overpayments or underpayments and you will be responsible for repaying this back to the DWP or paying extra towards your rent and service charges.
Please see the guidance from the DWP at https://www.gov.uk/universal-credit/changes-of-circumstances
