Apply for Universal Credit

Universal Credit is the replacement benefits system for people in work, looking for work or unable to work. It brings together six older benefits and helps make sure individuals are getting the financial support they are entitled to in one place.

Most tax credits recipients are eligible for Universal Credit. It can also help pay for childcare costs and give access to a work coach,

It adapts to your life too – for example, if you’re claiming Universal Credit and find yourself out of work unexpectedly, your Universal Credit payment will adjust automatically to support you. And if you want to take on more work, you may still be eligible for Universal Credit to make it financially worthwhile.
