统一福利Universal Credit

統一福利將逐步取代以下福利:

  • 兒童稅津貼
  • 房屋補貼
  • 失业補助金
  • 與收入相關的求職者津貼(JSA)
  • 與收入相關的就業和支助津貼(ESA
  • 工作稅务津貼
Universal Credit正在英國各地分階段推出。除非您的情況發生變化,否則在收到工作和養老金部(DWP)關於轉向Universal Credit之前,您無需做任何事情。您必須網上申請,創建網上帳戶並填寫您的詳細資料。申請後,您必須在7天內聯繫當地的Jobcentre Plus,與就業培訓員預約。如果您不參加會面,您將無法獲得Universal Credit。

我們能如何為您服務?

Universal Credit的缺點是您必須在網上申請。創建帳戶後,您必須定期登錄自己的帳戶,以查看郵件並提交您的承諾。該規定會給我們的一些會員帶來很大的問題,因為他們不懂英語,也無法訪問互聯網。因此,華人社區中心資訊及諮詢部門在此提供所需的幫助。
在這幾個月內中心幫助一些尚不知道他們有權享受Universal Credit的會員提出申請,並成功獲得該福利。其中一些有殘障、疾病和健康狀況不佳的會員還在我們中心的幫助下,獲得了額外補助。
例如中心曾經幫助一名身患殘疾的會員獲得原本每月獲得£311的統一福利,隨後助其成功填寫工作能力鑑定表及參加面試,最終幫他將福利金提升至每月£639,令其生活質素獲得極大的改善。

Universal Credit will replace the following benefits:

  • Child Tax Credit
  • Housing Benefit
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Working Tax Credit
Universal Credit is being introduced in stages across the UK. You do not need to do anything until you hear from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) about moving to Universal Credit, unless you have a change in circumstances.
You must apply online, create an online account and fill in your details. After you apply, you must contact your local Jobcentre Plus within 7 days to make an appointment with a work coach. Please note, you will not get Universal Credit if you do not attend the appointment.

How can we help?

The downside of Universal Credit is that you must apply online. Once you have created an account, you must sign in to your account regularly to check your messages and submit your commitments. Due to this, it creates problems for some of our members as they do not understand any English and do not have access to the Internet. Therefore, our Information & Advice Department are here to provide the help needed.
In the last few months, I have been able to help several of our vulnerable members who did not know that they were entitled, successfully get Universal Credit. With my help some of them even qualified and received an extra UC payment reflecting their disability, illness and health conditions.
Fox example, I provided an all-inclusive service to help one member to make an application and successfully secured £311 per month of UC for him.
Two months later, I helped him to complete a work capability questionnaire and assisted him in an assessment interview. He passed the test, and his award increased to £639 per month, which greatly improved the quality of his life.
