Published: Thursday, 9th April 2020

MPs on the House of Commons Work and Pensions Committee would like to hear about your experiences of claiming (or trying to claim) benefits during the coronavirus crisis.

The Work and Pensions Committee is a group of 11 MPs, from different political parties, whose role is to investigate how the Department for Work and Pensions is working. At the moment, we’re looking into how benefits like Universal Credit (UC) and Employment Support Allowance (ESA) are working, and the support people are getting from Jobcentres and online.

The Work & Pensions Select Committee has launched a survey to gather the experiences of UC claimants through COVID-19. It is a short survey – they say it should only take 8 minutes to complete, please find the link below
