We have recently been made aware of the Benefit Mythbuster online web tool, which is a new offering designed to help address commonly held myths and misconceptions about universal credit.
People can choose from three options – ‘Starting a New Claim’, ‘Managing your Claim’, and ‘Solving Problems’ to find out more about their rights, including information on job search, the claimant commitment, in-work conditionality, sanctions, and more.
People can also get in touch to add a myth that needs busting. Or help to bust a myth!
Benefit Mythbuster is one of a range of web tools from the advice and technology charity Lasa.
