Universal Credit is a monthly payment to help with your living costs, and you may be able to claim it if you are on a low income, out of work or you cannot work.
It is really important that you have updated your online claim with details of your new rent charges, as your payments may be wrong if you do not do this.
This section provides you with help and support claiming Universal Credit.
If you have a change in your circumstances, it is important you report this as soon as possible to prevent you being under- or over-paid Universal Credit.
