    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.
    Community champion and proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice i have given to members here on the community.

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