    Hi, I am moving in 2 weeks time and have to apply for universal credit as I’m moving to another county

    does anyone know if I can start the claim now so it’s ready to process on the date I move? As it takes about 5weeks I thought if I can start it now it’ll mean only 3 weeks  once I’ve moved until i receive my first payment.

    I’m panicking as if I claim on the moving date (2nd dec) I won’t get paid until after Christmas!

    What are you currently claiming?

    You presumably could claim if eligible and circumstances beyond the move won’t change and cause you to lose out on payments?

    Remember any benefits you’re currently receiving will stop as soon as you apply and any overpaymenrs will be deducted from your first uc payment.
