Help with Universal Credit

Please ask us for help if you need it!

What we can do

Our Money Advice Team will help you check your entitlment to Universal Credit (UC) and when the changes might affect you.

Your Housing Officer can also help by giving you up to date information about your rent for your UC claim. They can also help you to arrange to pay your rent on time to avoid the risk of arrears building up.

Other sources of assistance

If you are facing delays in benefit payment and financial hardship, you can apply to the Scottish Welfare Fund through your local Council.
