Support for Mortgage Interest

On 5 April 2018, Support for Mortgage Interest changed and will no longer be paid in its current format – this means that it will change from being paid as benefit and will now be paid as a loan for those that wish to continue receiving the support. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) should have or will contact members that are affected through SERCO (the company working on behalf of DWP) to explain this further.

For more information on how this may affect you, please contact the Pension Service, Job Centre Plus or the Universal Credit Helpline. Details of how to contact them are provided below. You may also find the following website helpful https://www.gov.uk/support-for-mortgage-interest
