To get a budgeting loan, you or your partner must have been claiming any of these benefits for the past 6 months:
- income support
- income-based jobseeker’s allowance
- income related employment and support allowance
- pension credit
Your chances of getting a loan and how much you might get will depend on your personal circumstances.
The minimum amount you can apply for is £100. The maximum amount you can get is:
- £348 if you’re single
- £464 if you have a partner but no children
- £812 if you or your partner claim Child Benefit.
You won’t be given a budgeting loan if you are not able to repay it.
