How will you manage while you wait for your first Universal Credit payment?

Graphic - Money-house

If you're going to struggle while you wait for your first payment, you may be entitled to an advance payment from the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) while your claim is being assessed.

This will then be recovered from your future monthly payments.
