Universal Credit in Depth (Part 1)

• Know who can claim Universal Credit including an awareness of restrictions in respect of mixed age couples, the SDP Gateway, people from abroad, young people, students and people with capital;
• Have explored the effect of different changes of circumstances on legacy benefits including those that are typical during the coronavirus outbreak;
• Be able to recognise when it is appropriate to make a claim to UC and when it is not.
