You can get an Advance Payment when:
An Advance Payment is an ‘advance’ of your future payments and you will need to pay it back. Rather than having to pay it back in one lump sum, you will pay it back over six to 12 months directly out of your Universal Credit payments.
If you have been on one of the benefits that Universal Credit is replacing, ask for a Benefit Transfer Advance as you pay these back over 12 months.
