Help the people started this petition to Boris Johnson (Prime Minister) and

To continue the benefit repayment pause until April 2021 for those on universal credit or other benefits that have been affected financially due to the Covid-19 outbreak. This particular pause has help those in financial harships and struggle with providing for themselves and their families during this trying time. As the economy opens up again money will become tight as prices go up to rebuild the economy including food, clothes and childcare.

The repayment pause was introduced in April 2020 for those on universal credit income due to loss of a job or low income due to the Covid-19 out break.  However DWP are trying to end this measure which may put more people at risk of being in financial hardship and struggle.

The payment pause will also ease financial hardship especially for those in financial struggle for low income families, parents, loss of a job due to Covid or those who are unable to find a job. This will help lessen debt in other areas and give those extra money to get back on their feet as the economy has only just opened back up. This pause could also lessen stress, depression caused my financial stress and more money to support families with small children and the summer holidays approaching.

Please sign this petion and help those who will benefit from this pause for the next 10 months!
