During November 2016 Universal Credit replaced the following 5 benefits in the Allerdale and Copeland areas, this is part of a countrywide roll out.
Currently this only affects new claims, so nothing should change for you if you are already receiving one of these benefits.
If you’re already claiming any of these, your local Jobcentre Plus or Tax Credits office will tell you when you have to move to Universal Credit.
If you want to read more about Universal Credit the GOV.UK website has some useful guides which you can find here.
