Getting Universal Credit and benefits

Restrictions are starting to ease, but you must still remember: Hands. Face. Space. Fresh air. Check the current rules.

All benefit applications start with an online application for Universal Credit (UC).

You may have received a phone call from Migrant Help or Reed in Partnership. They can help arrange an appointment for you at Jobcentre Plus.

The Help to Claim Line can also help you with your benefit application. You can contact them on 0800 144 8444 and they can arrange for a translator.

Alternatively, you can make an appointment with Sue at Open Door by phoning 01642 213 634. Sue can also help you with child benefits.

If you have any disabilities, you should speak to the Welfare Rights team to make sure you are getting all the benefits you're entitled to.
