Universal Credit UK: Earnings affect payments – how other forms of income impact amount

For those who do get help with circumstances, the monthly work allowance is £292.

This rises to £512 per month if the circumstances are that the person does not get help with housing costs.

It’s also important to be aware that some forms of income that have not been received from working can be deducted from the maximum award.

This is called unearned income, and it includes:

  • New-style Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • New-style Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Pension Income
  • Some benefits that aren’t replaced by Universal Credit.
