Universal Credit: Payments will be altered for partners claiming together – what to know

Generally, the more a person earns the less they’ll receive from Universal Credit.

The payment will reduce gradually, with the payments lowering by 63p for every £1 earned over the work allowance.

The work allowance is the amount that a person can earn before their Universal Credit is reduced and it will be affected by the claimants living expenses.

An individual’s work allowance will depend on if they’re responsible for a child, living with a disability that affects their ability to work and if they get help from the state for the housing costs.
