Detail

Index of Relevant Districts (issued 20 July 2015)

This is a list of the postcodes where Universal Credit is planned to go live between September 2015 and April 2016.

* Note – Purley, Thornton Heath and Great Yarmouth

The list issued on 20 July 2015 includes postcodes administered by Purley, Thornton Heath and Great Yarmouth jobcentres. This indicates that a Universal Credit service for single jobseekers will launch in those areas from 18 January, 15 February and 7 March 2016 respectively.

A new Commencement Order has now been made which specifies that Universal Credit will not now launch in these 3 postcode areas on the dates specified in the index. This reflects the plan for the expansion of the Universal Credit Digital Service during 2016, and new legislation covering these postcodes will be made in due course.
