Is Universal Credit for you?
You can apply for Universal Credit if you are on a low income or unemployed – see Universal Credit website.
You will usually only be able to claim Universal Credit if you are aged 18 or over, but some people aged 16 or 17 can get it, depending on their circumstances.
And you usually won’t be able to claim Universal Credit if you’re in full-time education or training, but people with certain circumstances can still apply.
