What exactly happens under Universal Credit if you work part time, are you still expected to attend fortnightly signing so if I were working lets say 24 hours per week under UC, would I still have to go to the JCP each fortnight to make a declaration ?

Universal Credit look at your monthly earnings rather than how many hours / days of the week you are working.


The advisors are working to the guideline 35 hours on the minimum wage. It is possible to earn too much money to be eligible for Universal Credit. In the event that your earnings take you over the threshold for Universal Credit - and without specific information e.g. any dependents / disabilities / help with housing costs etc. none of us will be able help you with that - your claim will close.


I think it is a case of playing things by ear with your work coach / the call centre.


If your advisor schedules an appointment when you are at work, then the call centre will reschedule you for another time


If you get any concrete answers to this question from Universal Credit, then please share!
