This spring 2015 edition of ‘Universal Credit at work’ sets out the government’s progress on delivering Universal Credit, alongside the latest analysis and evaluation on the impact that this vital reform is having.

The evidence shows that under Universal Credit, people move into work more quickly and earn more money, giving them increased financial security. The spring 2015 edition also confirms that new Universal Credit claimants in the expanded sites are more likely than Jobseeker’s Allowance claimants to:

  • Believe the benefit system is encouraging them to find work
  • Take any job they are able to do
  • Spend more time looking for work
