You can apply for Universal Credit online.
Before you apply, check if you’re eligible and what you can get.
You might also need to book and attend an interview at your local Jobcentre Plus. You’ll be told if you need to after you apply.
You’ll get your first payment around 5 weeks after applying online if your application is successful. When you apply, you can ask for an advance if you need help sooner.
