New Income Support claims – 0800 055 6688

Income Support is a vital benefit for single parents and UK citizens suffering from disabilities as it provides a weekly payment of up to approximately £80 to supplement your lost income. The majority of UK benefits are moving onto the new Universal Credit system, however you can still submit new claims for Income Support payments by dialling their freephone contact number 0800 055 6688 for free to arrange an appointment at your local Jobcentre Plus. Alternatively if you would rather fill out a claims form at home then send it off to your local centre by downloading the appropriate document from the official UK government website.


Manage an existing Income Support claim – 0345 608 8545

You must also inform them of any changes in your personal circumstances which may affect how much money you receive otherwise you may be prosecuted for benefit fraud. This includes moving in with your partner, your child moving to live with the other parent, a change in your employment status and getting a new job.
