Tax credits will end in April 2025 and recipients must make a Universal Credit claim to continue to receive financial support

Northern Ireland tax credit only recipients have been urged to make a Universal Credit claim within the three month deadline to continue to receive financial support.

Migration notice letters have now been sent to all tax credit only recipients who have three months from the date of their letter to make a UC claim, the DfC said. Communities Minister Gordon Lyons said he wanted to ensure that everyone who has received a migration notice inviting them to move from tax credits to UC, didn’t lose out on the financial support available to them.

“It is important for people to find out what they are entitled to given their own circumstances and my Department can assist with that through its dedicated telephony team and face-to-face support at local Jobs and Benefits office as well as online information at nidirect. People can also seek independent welfare advice on the Move to UC.
