Before you claim Universal Credit you should get advice. Benefits are complicated and you may have a choice of multiple benefit options. The benefits that are right for you will depend on your circumstances at the time.
If you don’t get advice you could lose money and once you have made a claim for Universal Credit you normally can’t switch benefit claims. You should always get advice first.
