    Hi @rushy05

    Unfortunately if you claimed on the 26th May you won’t be eligible as you had to have an award in the AP 26th April to 25th May.
    If you was previously on legacy benefits you may be eligible.

    To add, you may be eligible for the second payment of £324 in around October time, depending on your circumstances.

    Hello @rushy05 and welcome to the community, how are you today?

    How have you found the process of claiming UC so far? 

    This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m hopeful that you’ll find it to be a positive outlet. Feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 I have included below a few of the pages I’d recommend having a look through to get used to things:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.
