Q. Are you currently receiving Universal Credit or Working Tax Credit?
Yes, I am receiving UC or WTC
Q. What difference to your life has the extra £20 per week made, and what difference would it make if it was taken away?
Hi, I thought I'd do a recording this week for my answer. I have been receiving the 20 pound uplift on Universal Credit. It definitely has made a big difference to me. I know some people might think it's only 20 pound. It was great in the beginning when you weren't losing any of your repayments, but now my I'm paying back a tax credit overpayment and although I'm losing it, I'm still receiving my full Universal Credit payment. So I think I would notice a big difference losing the 20 pound a week, and I'm really hoping to keep it. Thank you.
