Applications for budgeting loans from the Social Fund are not like Crisis Loans, they can not be made over the Telephone in most cases. Usually, to apply for a Budgeting Loan you will need To call the Social fund on their national telephone number and then they will send you a paper copy of the form SF500, this process generally takes around 4 days as they are sent by second class post.

To speed up your application for a Budgeting loan you can simply download a BUDGETING LOAN APPLICATION FORM. This form was created by Jobcentre Plus, and we can not verify if it is still up to date, and we are unaffiliated with Jobcentre Plus or any other organisation listed on this website.

Using a downloaded version of the SF500 application will mean that you are able to get your claim looked at a lot more quickly by your local Benefit Delivery Centres Social Fund section and will – as a result be able to get a much quicker decision.

  7. i split up with my partner of 10yrs in november we were claiming income jsa i have claimed income surport since nov 2012 can i have a bugerting loan or is it to soon yet to ask for one

    1. You need to have 26 weeks of a relevent, unbroken claim. it is important to find out when you claim started , then count 26 weeks on from that( then add a few days, just to be sure)

      If you claimed in Nov 2012, then your 26 weeks should end May 2013

        1. Hi stuart,
          Thanks for taking the time to raise this.

          It is possible to have some breaks of up to 28 days- HOWEVER this is dependent upon the benefit “linking periods”, and is specifically related to claims that “link”. Added to that, partners claims don’t always ‘link’ and as such it is improbable that a loan would be awarded inside the 26 week window ( according the many DWP staff that we have spoken to).

          I am more than happy to correct this if you can show/explain how the 26 rule interacts with the linking rule :)

  11. please could you tell me how i can stand against the 15 pound a week they are taking back out my i.s for a social loan i had over 3 years ago, i was in employment since then until recently, and they was taking 20 p/m when i was on more money and working!! it doesnt make sense,now im in hardship tryin to survive on 130 pw with 2 children and one on the way,iv even had to be over paid by the ctc so that we can survive until april,due to their error…and nobody seems to care, i have been to the citezins advice but they never can get through as they r always so busy:(…so stressful especially since i am entitled to no loans or grants,because i havent been unemployede for long enuff,and i have no clothes that fit,no money to buy my new baby even a bib.i wud go bk to work but who is gonna emloy a 7 month pregnant woman!!!…really stuck plz advise….

  12. Hi i have been sanctioned from jsa but will be getting hardship allowance i have been offered a budgeting loan and have accepted it will i still get it thanks

  13. i have been on income support then straight to jsa then to esa will i still beable to get a budgeting loan thanks

  14. I have been on contribution based jsa. Which has ran out so i have reapplied and now going for income based jsa. Can i apply for a budgeting loan having been on contribution based jsa for 6months?

  15. I’ve come out of supported housing now, because I was homeless, I have now been given a flat for myself by an housing association. I applied for a community care grant but have been refused because i do not meet the criteria, however I applied for a bugeting loan for 1,500 (just so i knew I would get the most im entitled to), they have given me £348.00 and I will get that in the next 10 days.

    My point is, is that Im 17 i have my own place i have no furnature, not even a bed, I have no flooring, so when i get this bugeting loan it will cost around that to get carpets and have them fitted.

    Could you tell me if im entitled to any grants or if i could re-apply for the bugeting loan for more money.

    Thankyou, Lewis

    1. As long as you get some benefit you can be awarded a Loan, however some loans and grants require that you have been on benefits for 26 weeks +

    1. It depends where you live, however you can get one by calling the free crisis loan number and asking that they put you through

  22. Hi,

    I was successful in receiving a loan last year and have just over £500 left to pay on it. I managed to do 6 weeks work ending on 23rd December 2011 which unfortunately has left me in a bit of a finacial mess as when the contract ended tax credits worked out that my child tax credits should go down for 4 months, also my son has decided that this would be a perfect time to have a massive growth spurt and grow out of most of his clothes! Im really struggling and would like to apply for another small budgeting loan so that I can get out of my overdraft in order to stop incurring fees every month which are crippling, would I be eligible or have I not had enough weeks on I/S since my contract ended?

  23. hi im 18 and on benifits i would like a loan of £1000 to buy furniture and some clothes what would i be intiled to
