    I'm sorry but i don't know what you mean by "UC benefit transfer" do you mean the advance payment?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    That would be the new claim advance, which as Ray correctly advises, you can't apply for another after you receive your first payment.

    There's a budgeting advance available but whether you're entitled will depend on your circumstances.
    you’ll need to have claimed one of these benefits for 6 months or more:
    • Universal Credit
    • means-tested Jobseeker's Allowance,
    • means-tested Employment and Support Allowance
    • Income Support
    • Pension Credit

    You'll also need to have earned less than £2,600 in the 6 months before your application. This figure is £3,600 if you live with a partner.



    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
