WATCH: Stop the five-week wait

This short animation explains how, under Universal Credit, people who lose their jobs will have to wait at least five weeks before they get any financial support from the government. Even if you’ve worked all of your life, you will be forced to wait at least five weeks for help.


Making people wait five weeks instead of the current two weeks is a huge increase yet not many people have heard about it. The government have been keeping quiet about the five-week wait so it’s up to us to make sure as many people as possible hear about it and we need your help.
