Ukraine crisis

As people around the world watch what’s happening in Ukraine, Birmingham’s communities are coming together to support international appeals and efforts to help those fleeing war. Details of how to offer support and where to find information and advice can be found on our City of Sanctuary webpage

What is universal credit

Universal Credit is administered by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and not Birmingham City Council.

If you have a partner, there will be one monthly payment for both of you.

If you have any other adults living with you who are entitled to benefit they may claim in their own right, but a deduction could be made from your payment for each adult, if applicable..

You will not be able to claim help with your Council Tax within Universal Credit and instead will still need to apply for council tax support separately.
