A family member has just returned to the U.K. after living in Cambodia for 14 years. He is a British citizen, was born here. Is he able to claim universal credit while he looks for work? I’m not sure if he has to wait for a certain amount of time first? He doesn’t have savings and is living with family for now. I can’t seem to find an answer online so wondered if anyone knew? Many thanks, J x
