Hi

 

The company i used to work for has closed down, I do not have a P45 to claim benefits and I am unable to contact them by phone or in person. The company no longer exists, theres another shop there instead which has opened up.

 

I only have payslips from December 2017 which is another company i used to work for (and I was paid cash-in-hand). These small busineses did not give us payslips but only when we needed one and asked for it they would supply it.

 

Will I able to get universal credit if i dont have a P45 or payslips ?

 

What will happen now ?

Only if you were a foreign citizen or a UK citizen who had been absent from the UK so needed a Habitual Residency test, would you need to provide pay slips. And even then you could apply to HMRC for your tax records, which should show employment pay reported.

 

So apply for UC and just answer all of the questions accurately in the online application. Once you have done that, you will need to call UC to book a first Job Centre appointment.

 

Just follow the process advised on the online application.


We could do with some help from you.

ok, thank you for your assistance and I will do as advised.

 

So, just to be clear, in-case the UC staff at the jobcentre were persistant or refusing to accept without those documents, I understand that i dont need to provide a P45 or payslips if i dont have any ?
