Check whether you can claim Universal Credit

Universal Credit is rolling out across the UK, replacing tax credits and other benefits for working-age claimants. However, whilst Universal Credit is currently available in all Jobcentre Plus areas in Great Britain, whether you can claim in your postcode area depends on your circumstances.


Apply for Universal Credit

You can apply for Universal Credit on the Gov.UK website.
