DWP has confirmed that there will be some significant changes to Universal Credit this month.
The coronavirus pandemic has meant that many more people are seeking benefits in the form of public credit or other assistance from the government. People who have lost their job or are on a lower income because of furlough are just some of the people that have been forced to turn to the government for help - reports Birmingham Live.
Students have also been affected in the pandemic, with their part-time jobs in hospitality in jeopardy with the 10pm curfews and lockdowns.
