7 Nov 2012 early retirement ill health pension by Deven Ghelani | November 7, 2012 | posted in: Welfare Reform | 2 Comments How does universal credit affect adults on an early retirement pension due to serious ill health?

I am putting up a summary of the regulations later on this week and have a meeting on the detailed regulations with the SSAC later. I will raise it there, but I would guess if you are on IB / ESA then you would still get Universal Credit, but your pension would be treated as income and lower your entitlement.
