Universal Credit: Advance payments offered as rollout continues
BBC News - UK

Benefit claimants struggling to pay their bills will be able to get cash advances upfront, Work and Pensions Secretary David Gauke has said.

He said he recognised concerns that people moving on to Universal Credit had to wait six weeks to be paid.

He told the Conservative conference those needing a cash advance would get one within five days, with those in immediate need getting it the same day.

But he said he was committed to the system and its rollout would go ahead.
