Under paid?

Hi i have recently been made homeless and have been stuck in temporary accommodation and was told in had to sign on to Universal Credit. Having had to wait from the middle of October i have finally received a payment which seems to be less than i would have received if i had stayed on ESA. I also feel robbed as i was told that i could have stayed on ESA till 2019. Any help or advise would be grateful.

    Hi @daz66, and welcome to the community.

    So sorry to hear about your current circumstances. Do you have access to a phone at the moment? As you only have a temporary address at the moment, it might be best to contact our helpline to see if there's anything they can suggest to try and get this issue resolved. The phone number is 0808 800 3333, or you can also use alternative contact methods.
