Universal Credit timetable published

The timetable for the introduction of the new Universal Credit has been published by the government.

The credit will replace existing benefits such as Jobseeker’s Allowance, Income Support and Housing Benefit.

It will be phased in from October 2013 and will cover 12 million claimants by 2017.

The plan for Universal Credit was first announced earlier this year as part of a radical simplification of the state welfare and benefits system.
