What are my options?
If you think a Universal Credit decision is wrong, you may be able to:
- Ask for an explanation
- Have the decision looked at again
- Appeal against the decision.
This section takes you through these options.
You don’t have to ask for an explanation of the decision; you can ask to have the decision looked at again straight away.
You must ask the Department for Work and Pensions to look at the decision again before you can appeal.
Applies to: England, Scotland and Wales.
Advice: If you need advice about a benefits or tax credits decision, you should contact a benefits adviser. You can use our Turn2us Find an Adviser tool to find a local one.
