    I claim tax credits now – does universal credit affect me?
    At present, existing tax credit claimants are not affected by the introduction of universal credit. From July 2019, DWP and HMRC will start to move existing tax credit claimants across to universal credit. It is expected that this will be complete in 2022. Not all tax credit claimants will move to universal credit – if you are above state pension credit age (or in a joint claim both of you are above state pension credit age) the intention is for you to claim pension credit instead. The full detail of this is not yet known.
    The only way you will move to universal credit before 2019 is if:
    You choose to make a claim for universal credit – if you think you may be better off by claiming universal credit then you might be able to claim it depending on where you live. You must get advice before doing this as you may be worse off under universal credit compared to tax credits.
    You have a change of circumstances that ends your tax credit award – for example you are claiming working tax credit only and lose your job or you are single and move in with someone already claiming universal credit.
    You need to make a claim for another benefit that has been replaced by universal credit – for example if you live in a full (digital) service universal credit area and you need to claim help with your rent then you will not be able to claim housing benefit and instead will have to claim universal credit. This will automatically end your tax credits award.
