I am having trouble awnsering there questions the one is below.

 

Confirm previous earnings from work

To make sure you get the right amount, you'll need to tell us how much you were paid while you were working.

In the 12 months before you claimed Universal Credit, were there any gaps in your employment?
This doesn't include paid holidays, maternity or paternity leave.
 
Awnser (yes) or (No)
 
In the 12 months before you claimed Universal Credit, were you living with a partner?
 
This one will be no.
 
 
In the 12 months before you claimed Universal Credit, did you earn below £542 per month at any time?
You'll find this on your payslips or bank statements.
 
Awnser (yes) or (No)

It is asking about employment earnings to see if you qualify for benefit cap exemption. So answer will be no, if you have not been employed.

 

And if you are in the LCWRA support group, you will be exempt from benefit cap anyway.

We could do with some help from you.
