Not sure if you can get Universal Credit?

Universal Credit is a benefit you can claim if you’re on a low income or unemployed.

“It might be worth claiming Universal Credit if:

  • you’re struggling to pay the bills

  • you’ve lost your job and have no income

  • your income has dropped but you’re still working
  • you have a disability or illness that stops you working

  • you have childcare costs

  • you’re caring for someone

If you already get other benefits, you might have to move to Universal Credit instead.

There’s no set level of income where you stop being eligible for Universal Credit – it depends on your situation.

Read our advice to check if you can get Universal Credit. If you’re still not sure, you can talk to an adviser (contact details below).”
