Universal Credit Calculator

| posted in: Welfare Reform | 2 Comments

Are the fields on the Universal Credit Calculator how the benefit is actually going to be assessed and processed?; and was the Universal Credit Calculator designed before the Chancellor of the Exchecor’s Autumn Mini-Budget? Because according to the calculator, a single with no savings will be awarded £77 a week. As income based benefits will only rise by 1% from April 2013, should this only be £71.70 a week?

  1. The calculator is currently based on the draft Universal Credit regulations and current levels of award. The free version of the calculator give an accurate estimate of your entitlement, but no online calculator can claim to be exact.

    I will be working over Christmas to update it according to the Universal Credit regulations that were released this week. I will link to a summary of the regulations later from this post.
