Making a claim
Most people make their Universal Credit claim online on GOV.UK. There is help available for people who need a little extra support to make their claim. To make a claim, or for more information about the help that may be available, visit Universal Credit: How to claim.
If you are part of a couple and living in the same household, you will need to make a joint claim for Universal Credit. You will receive a single monthly payment for your whole household.
