Universal Credit (UC) roll-out 2018

Full Digital Service Areas

Universal Credit is being rolled out in full digital service areas. Full digital service areas are gradually replacing live service areas. Claimants on Universal Credit in a live service area will be transferred onto the full digital service when their area goes digital. 

Anyone in a full digital service area who is working age can start a claim for Universal Credit, as long as they don't have three or more children. Anyone with three or more children who is already on Universal Credit will stay on Universal Credit, rather than be transferred to other benefits or tax credits. Families with three or more children will be able to start Universal Credit claims from November 2018 onwards.

The government expects the national roll-out of the full digital service to be completed by September 2018. The government plans to start transferring people who are still on existing benefits or tax credits onto Universal Credit from July 2019. They plan to complete this process by March 2022.

This is a list of the jobcentre areas which are becoming full digital service areas for Universal Credit each month.
