Universal credit advice now available on big TVs everywhere

The government has announced that universal credit advice will now be made available on TV red buttons.

Universal credit is the coalition's flagship welfare policy, and will roll six separate benefits together into one single payment.

It will be paid monthly rather than fortnightly to claimants, leading to fears that many will struggle to budget and that those who used to get housing benefit paid direct to landlords may fall into arrears.
