DWP Suspends ‘Third Party Deduction’ Universal Credit Payments

Posted on May 5th, 2020

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has temporarily paused third-party deductions from Universal Credit until 10 May.

DWP is currently in the process of explaining the changes to claimants via their online journal and to third parties, including housing providers who collect arrears by this method.

The third-party payments that have been suspended include:

  • Rent arrears
  • Service Charge arrears
  • Council Tax arrears

A DWP spokesperson confirmed to Propertymark that direct payments for rent will continue and are not affected by this temporary pause.
