Work allowance If you are receiving Universal Credit you will be given a monthly work allowance.

If you are receiving Universal Credit you will be given a monthly work allowance.  Your work allowance is how much money you can earn before it affects your Universal Credit payment.

As you earn more, your Universal Credit payment will reduce. Your Universal Credit payment will be reduced by 63p for every £1 you earn.

You can earn a certain amount before your Universal Credit payment is reduced if you or your partner:

  • have a disability or health condition that affects your ability to work or
  • are responsible for a child or young person.

Your work allowance will be lower if you get help with housing costs.
