Benefit Mythbuster  – factchecking myths about universal credit

19th July 2018

Benefit Mythbuster 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.

Benefit Mythbuster is one of a range of web tools from the advice and technology charity Lasa.

Lasa is a social welfare law and tech charity established in 1984, and are dedicated to supporting organisations in their use of technology and the delivery of social welfare law advice to the disadvantaged communities they serve.
