How do I cancel my Universal Credit?

Before cancelling Universal Credit I would advise you getting in touch with us on the Lone Parent Helpline 0808 801 0323 or emailing us at to talk through your reasons for wanting to cancel.

As Universal Credit covers 6 of the legacy benefits you wont be able to reapply for them once you have been on Universal Credit. Perhaps your circumstances have changed so you are not now eligible for Universal Credit but it is best to check. You can also call the Universal Credit Helpline for advice/assistance on 0800 328 5644.
