I see the application queue for Universal Credit is very long. Is there a way to claim it without having to fill in the form online?
Universal Credit has be be claimed online. The application process is difficult at the moment due to the increase in the number of people applying but there is no shortcut. If you need help while waiting for your first payment of universal credit you can contact your local council for a crisis grant, which does not have to be paid back, to buy food or pay for fuel.
