Universal Credit to be reduced by £20 per week

On October 6, 2021, the standard allowance of benefits will be reduced by £80 a month.

The independent Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) analysis shows that half a million more people, including 200,000 children, are set to be pulled into poverty by the reversal.

Citizens Advice are of the opinion that this cut will affect nearly 6 million people.  They report:

Monthly standard allowances will drop:

  • By a quarter for single claimants under 25, from £344 to £257.33
  • By a fifth for single claimants over 25, from £411.51 to £324.84
  • By 17% for joint claimants under 25, from £490.60 to £403.93
  • By 14% for joint claimants over 25, from £596.58 to £509.91.
