Universal Credit Number 0843 455 0035.
Universal Credit is a benefit that is awarded to individuals who are either on a low income or who are unemployed. The benefit was introduced back in 2014 and is slowly being rolled out across the country. There is lots of information available about eligibility on the Government website, and individuals are also urged to phone the Universal Credit number about any queries they may have.
If you already claim benefits.
If you are already claiming benefits then you do not need to take any action as you will automatically be eligible and be awarded your claim instead of your usual benefits.
What you might receive when claiming.
The amount that you can be awarded very much depends on the amount of income that you receive (if any) and your personal circumstances. However what it will help you with is the cost of the following:
- Childcare and caring for children.
- Help if you are disabled or care for someone with a disability.
- If you are unsure about these guidelines and need further clarification, once again you can phone the helpline.
Employment and Universal Credit.
There is no limitation to the number of hours that you can work while claiming your credits. The amount you receive is directly linked to the amount you earn. The more you bring home, the lower the amount of Universal Credit you will receive.

How do you receive you benefit.
Payments of Universal Credit go directly into your chosen bank account or building society, once a month. If you and your partner both receive a claim and you live at the same address, then you will receive a joint payment.

What happens once you have made a claim?
Your benefits that you are already receiving will stop and then be automatically replaced with Universal Credit. This should be a seamless process with no loss of money. If you are making a claim and do not receive any benefits, the claim will be processed as quickly as possible.
What happens if you receive housing benefit?
If you are currently receiving housing benefit, then Universal Credit may be used towards helping to pay for your rent. Any payments done this way will need to be done via your landlord. It is also important that you find out exactly how much of the rent will be paid and how you need to go about paying it.
What happens with regards to Universal Credit if I receive Tax Credits?
You will be notified by letter that you need to end your claim, and then the payment of Universal Credit can begin.
What happens if I move in with someone who is already claiming ?
You will have to end your present benefits and then claim for Universal Credit. This is because you will need to make a joint claim with your partner, with a new agreement needed to be signed. More information on the citizens advice website.
The process of applying can be complex and difficult to understand. However, help is available. You can find out more information on the Universal Credit website. Alternatively, you can phone the Universal credit helpline on 0843 455 0035 and make a claim.
