Factchecking myths and misconceptions about universal credit
Benefit Mythbuster (https://benefitmythbuster.net) 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 rightsnet - the social welfare law information & advice site for advisers. Find out more at: https://www.rightsnet.org.uk/resources/webtools
