Universal Credit income falls as you earn – but some could keep all of their earnings


Sonya Ruparel, Director of Programmes and Partnerships at Turn2Us, said: “There is an endemic issue of unclaimed benefits in the UK.

“The confusing, sometimes hostile, and often stigmatising world of social security has led to millions of people not claiming their entitlements.”

The charity has launched a new calculator and guidance to help people work out what they could be entitled to – other benefits calculators are available at gov.uk.

And it’s not just Universal Credit that claimants could be missing out on, the £15billion includes Pension Credit, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Support, Child Benefit and PIP.
