Our income last month dropped by a good deal and I'm sat trying to work out how this will effected my universal crefit claim this month.
All I've managed to find online is how it's all calculated but not a actual calculator to work out roughly what is due in this month - because of the dip in income our debt increased slightly and I'm hoping to be able to back pay some of the debt as our income is back to normal this month.
Is there anyone good out there that could tell me roughly what to expect?
Allowance : 1240 Work allowance : 198 Income: 1045
I've worked it out as income minus work allowance : 1045 - 198 = 847
With UC it's meant to make work pay (until you earn enough to cancel it out) so given you'll be about £500 better off than just having UC, that us about right and makes it worthwhile working, if you weren't there would be no point 😊
It's terrible, isn't it. I was pregnant when I lost my job, and very much showing so funny enough didn't secure another job even after a number of interviews. Now it's a case of 'why have you been out of work..' Can't win.
