Benefit Mythbuster

Benefit Mythbuster is a new online web tool 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, who also deliver rightnet – the social welfare law information & advice site for advisers. Find out more here.
