The Budgeting advance telephone number

The Budgeting advance telephone number is yet to be advertised, however we expect that the telephone number will be a free phone 0800 contact number as most DWP emergency service contact numbers are handled this way.

As soon as a telephone number has been decided it will be published on this page.

***UPDATE! 26/04/2013***

IF YOU:

  • You are awaiting an award of benefit from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and there is a delay and you have no money. In these circumstances you can apply for a short term benefit advance which was called a benefit alignment payment. To do this you need to contact the DWP on 0845 608 8637 and select the option for the benefit you are waiting for. You must tell the DWP that you require a short term benefit advance not a crisis loan.

 

  • You require a budgeting loan or budgeting advance.  If so, please contact the DWP on 0845 603 6967. A budgeting loan will help to pay for essential things like rent, furniture, clothes or hire purchase debts and the smallest amount you can borrow is £100.

As with other DWP loans, the application process will be instantiated by a telephone call or by a application downloaded and sent into the DWP. Checking up on the progress of your application can be done by telephone however it is likely that new loan applications will take several days to be logged and acknowledged by the DWP.

    Do you know of any landline numbers that aren’t 0845? It costs a fortune holding on while you wait for someone to answer your call. There were a few on the saynoto0870 but they don’t seem to work anymore!
