Apologies if this has been asked and answered already… 

Does the Coronavirus 3 month repayment suspension exclude ALL UC advances? i.e. budgeting as well as new claim?
Thanks!

Nothing in budgeting advances to suggest the same - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/universal-credit-advances#get-a-budgeting-advance

But you could try…
