    HI and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope.

    Universal credit it a means tested benefit and claiming it will totally depend on her circumstances. There's only so much advice that can be given on an internet forum. It's extremely difficult to give this sort of advice on an internet forum without knowing all of the exact circumstances and even worse when you're asking on behalf of another person because you may not know all their details. We can only give advice based on the information you give and for this reason i'd advise a visit to her local advice centre for a full benefits check.
    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.

    It's nice to have you with us @Dutchman. Is there anything in particular about Universal Credit you were wanting to know?
