Budgeting Loans can help pay for essential things like rent, furniture, clothes or hire purchase debts. The smallest amount you can borrow is £100. Budgeting Loans are interest free, so you only pay back what you borrow. You normally have to repay the loan within 104 weeks.


Anyone receiving one of these benefits for at least 26 weeks:

  • Income Support

  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Pension Credit
You must still be getting one of these benefits when your application is assessed.


You can apply online or through your Jobcentre Plus.
