This postcode checker has been developed by the advice and technology charity Lasa and the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group (an initiative of the Chartered Institute of Taxation to give a voice to the unrepresented in the tax and tax credit systems).
Universalcreditinfo is a new web tool designed to help people check whether they can claim universal credit in their post code area (and the status of tax credits and other benefit claims), with links to information about how universal credit works and to details of independent local advice organisations across the country.
Universalcreditinfo is part of our work on the revenuebenefits website and its development has been funded by HMRC. We have also been helped with the mapping elements of the tool by the MapIt team at MySociety.
