Applying for Universal Credit
Universal Credit has replaced several benefits for people of working age, on a low income and who are not working. It's administered nationally by the Department for Work and Pensions.
You may be able to get Universal Credit if:
- you are on a low income or out of work
- you are 16 or over
- you are under state pension age (or your partner is)
- you and your partner have £16,000 or less in savings between you
- you live in the UK
More information can be found on the Universal Credit website.
