    Universal Credit £20 a week uplift to end in September

    BRITS on Universal Credit will start getting letters within weeks telling them their benefits will be cut by £20 a week at the end of September, DWP boss Thérèse Coffey said today:

    Edit to add the BBC link too:

    We knew it was coming just thought I would flag it up so no one's shocked when the letter drops through the door

    They will not be sending out any letters.

    They have now started putting notes on peoples UC journal giving a specific date for your last uplift payment; the notes they are now putting on the journals read:
    You have been getting an extra £86.67 each month since 27 April 2020. This is a temporary increase because of the coronoavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This increase will end soon.

    Your payment on ## September 2021 will be the last time you receive this amount.
    You may or may not also get an email/text depending on how you have said you can be contacted - but they are very clear that there will be no letters sent.
    Mr Quince had also said that the entry in the claimant's online journal will trigger an alert via email or text, depending on their preferred method of communication, he'd added that 'we are not writing letters to claimants'.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.
