Stay in control of your money - the first right of appropriation

Some people have had problems with their bank when they have been overdrawn; the bank has taken their Housing Benefit or Discretionary Housing Payments to reduce their overdraft.  You can find out more on our first right of appropriation information page.

Universal Credit is coming

Universal Credit Full Service has started to rollout in Tendring.

Over the next 2 years it is expected for Universal Credit to replace the following benefits for most working age people.

  • Housing Benefit
  • Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Child Tax Credit
  • Employment Support Allowance (Income Related) 
  • Income Support.

If you are awarded Universal Credit and need help to pay your council tax, please remember to make a separate claim with this council.

You can find more information about Universal Credit at: https://www.gov.uk/topic/benefits-credits/universal-credit
