Universal Credit

From 28/11/18 Universal Credit full service came into effect in West Dunbartonshire. This means that most people who require assistance with paying rent after this date and are not already receiving Housing Benefit for a property within West Dunbartonshire will need to make an application for Universal Credit.

Further information on Universal Credit and advice on the support available to you is available on the Universal Credit page.
