Who can claim Universal Credit

Universal Credit is gradually being rolled out across the UK, and it may not be available in the area where you live.

To find out when Universal Credit will be rolled out in your area, contact Jobcentre Plus on 0800 055 6688 (textphone 0800 023 4888) or visit GOV.UK.

You may be able to claim Universal Credit if you’re out of work or on a low income. If you qualify for other benefits such as contribution-based Jobseeker’s Allowance or contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance, you should claim them as well as Universal Credit.
