Applying for Universal Credit

If you don't already claim any benefits, you will need to apply for Universal Credit online. You will need to provide the following when you register:

  • your National Insurance Number
  • your email address
  • your phone number
  • your address
  • whg's address - 100 Hatherton Street, Walsall, WS1 1AB
  • how much rent you are paying
  • your bank account details
  • details of any savings you have
  • any salary or other income

It's really important you have all of this to hand, as once you start your application you cannot stop, go back or save your progress.
