To help Universal Credit claimants to make better sense of what could be expected of them during the Covid 19 period, PLP has added a short series of FAQs to our microsite.

As of early April, roughly one million people have claimed Universal Credit due to the coronavirus outbreak. The DWP has not currently suspended sanctions, so it is important that claimants are aware of how to avoid being sanctioned.

Please share the link with colleagues in the benefits, advice, legal and charity sectors, as well as anyone you know who is claiming benefits.
