    Apologies if similar has been posted but I don’t seem to be able to find anything. I’m unable to work at the moment like many, due to corona virus.  I am self employed but also receive some housing benefit and tax credits.  I’m not sure if I should be applying for UC or await a message from HMRC regarding the self employment grant. However that’s not expected to pay out until June.  I’m currently using savings and tax credits to pay bills but these will run out soon.

    Why don’t you give HMRC a call or send them an email.

    The call volumes and emails to HMRC are so high – thus I’m posting here. Hoping someone else who is in similar circumstances knows better! 🙂

    My name is Sandra and I am one of the moderators.

    Our helpline reopens tomorrow at 10am on 0808 802 0925, and they should be able to advise you about this

    I hope you make some progress
