How much is Universal Credit?

Universal Credit is made up of a standard allowance plus elements for:

  • Housing
  • Being a carer
  • Childcare costs
  • Disabled children
  • An ill or disabled adult

Your maximum Universal Credit Award is made up of:

  • One standard allowance for your household, plus
  • Any elements which cover your family circumstances

You will get the maximum award if your household has no other earnings and savings or capital of £6,000 or less.

If you or someone in your household has other earnings and/or savings, these will be taken into account when working out your Universal Credit payment.

Universal Credit is a new type of benefit designed to support people who are on a low income or out of work. It will replace six existing benefits and is currently being rolled out across the UK. The new system is based on a single monthly payment, transferred directly into a bank account. At present Universal Credit only affects newly unemployed people in certain areas of the country.

 

How does working affect Universal Credit?

You can work as many hours as you like when you’re on Universal Credit.

There are no limits like there are with existing benefits such as Income Support or Working Tax Credits.

If you’re in paid work you might be entitled to a work allowance.

What is the work allowance?

The work allowance is the amount of money you’re allowed to earn before your Universal Credit payment is affected.

You will be entitled to a work allowance if you’re:

  • Responsible for dependent children, and/or
  • You can’t work as much because of illness or disability.

If you’re entitled to the work allowance, you can earn up to the threshold for your circumstances.

Your Universal Credit payment will then go down by 63p for every £1 you earn above this amount. This is called the earnings taper.

If you don’t qualify for the work allowance, your Universal Credit payment will go down by 63p for every £1 on all your earnings.

Employer-paid benefits, such as Statutory Maternity, Paternity, Adoption and Sick Pay are treated at earnings and will be affected by the taper.

 

What is Universal Credit?

Universal Credit is a single monthly payment for people in or out of work, which merges together some of the benefits and tax credits that you might be getting now.

Universal Credit will replace:

  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Child Tax Credit
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Housing Benefit

  • It will be paid monthly into a bank account of your choice
  • If you get help with your rent, this will be included in your monthly payment  you’ll then pay your landlord directly
  • If you live with your partner and you are both eligible, you will get one monthly joint payment
  • It can take several weeks after you make your claim to get your first payment

Working and claiming Universal Credit

There are no limits on how many hours a week you can work if you’re claiming Universal Credit. Instead, the amount you get will gradually reduce as you earn more, so you won’t lose all your benefits at once.

 

When does Universal Credit start and who does it affect?

Universal Credit is being introduced in stages. Most people won’t be affected to start with. At the moment, universal credit mainly affects newly unemployed people in specific areas of the country.

If you’re already claiming one or more of the benefits being phased out, you should carry on claiming as normal. You’ll be told when you need to do anything differently.

However, if your circumstances change, you may be asked to claim universal credit instead.
