    Hi,

    No legislation has been brought out regarding this yet, i'm afraid. The only legislation was for those already claiming it.

    You mean you're already on universal credit? If so then you read correctly but there's been no further updates and no legislation in place yet. You need to wait longer i'm afraid.

    O.k. thanks for the update. What a load of nonsense only because i moved to a different area .I'm losing £324 a month.

    No worries, yes a lot of people are exactly like you. Hopefully they will announce something soon. I wouldn't expect that much though because i have heard it's something like £80 per month but of course nothing is final yet.

    Yeah i read that also. It's the usual government scenario robbing the needy to feed the rich.
