Hi Paul,

You may be eligible for Universal Credit support if your income has been reduced. It depends on your circumstances (such as whether you live with a partner who is also working), and if you have any savings or assets (like second properties).

If you have capital over £16,000 (either on your own or between you and your partner), you won’t be eligible. Anything between £6,000 – £16,000 will reduce how much you’re entitled to, but you could still get something.

Head to the Universal Credit application page – fill out the answers and it’ll tell you if you’re entitled to receive benefits. Hope that helps!
