Q. Do you get free school meals and what difference do they make?
Yes I get free school meals here in N Ireland and we are getting the allowance over the summer again this year which is a huge help. I worry though about my earnings going over and losing the access to this vital support as Universal Credit does have a lower threshold than Working Tax Credits. I couldn't afford to go over that threshold and lose this for my child, I'd have to be earning a lot more than the threshold for it to pay me.
