It is clear there are holes in the Government systems and schemes in respect of what individuals can claim during the current pandemic. An increasing number of individuals are finding that they are not eligible to claim anything under any of the schemes brought in to help tackle the COVID-19 crisis.

If you are finding yourself in this position and are concerned about low income, then our recommendation would be to see what you are entitled to from Universal Credit.

The amount that can be claimed is unique for each person dependant upon their own personal circumstances. The link below is to a fact sheet that will give you an idea of what your likely entitlement would be:
