No matter what your circumstances, Universal Credit helps make sure you’re getting all the financial support you’re entitled to in one place, and all the help that’s right for you, whether you are:
- in work
- wanting to increase your earnings
- looking for a job
- unable to work at the moment
It can include financial support for the cost of housing, children and childcare, so if you are eligible, the amount you receive will be customised to your unique personal circumstances.
What is Universal Credit?
Universal Credit helps make sure you’re getting tailored support to suit your life, beyond a monthly payment. This might involve helping you to develop your skills, find work or increase your earnings.
With Universal Credit you also get an online account that helps give you more control of your claim. Through your account you can see how much you’re going to be paid and contact a work coach or case manager about your claim.
