There are three main advances available to Universal Credit claimants.

 

These are:

 

All advances from Universal Credit are interest free and are usually paid into your bank within 3 working days.

It's important to know that these advances are discretionary and if rejected, you can ask for the decision to be looked at again but you have no rights to appeal.

All advances have strict eligibility criteria but you can contact Universal Credit by telephone (0800 328 5644) at any time to check whether an advance is available to you.
