    i have tried the entitled to site and it says i am just entitled to child benefit , i probably filled it out wrong well i hope so, can any one help me on where to get information from Im really worried about having no money for 6 weeks if i change over to universal credit.  thank you in advance

    Hi don’t know if I’m right but in my area universal creadits only cover up to 2 children, so I had to apply for income support, I do have a 2year old as my youngest, if he was 5 it would have been job seekers. So could it be that becouse you have 3 kids (like myself) you need to apply for an alternative.

    hope it helps
