Once you claim for Universal Credit, it will take at least 5 or 6 weeks for you to get your first payment (sometimes more).
You can ask for an advance payment of Universal Credit to help you get by while you're waiting for your first payment. Please note, from 18 September 2019, Universal Credit claimants will need to verify their identity AND attend a face to face interview before a new claim advance can be considered
The Citizens Advice website has information about Universal Credit and guidance on how to ask for an advance payment.
