Relevant threshold for purposes of calculating surplus earnings under UC to stay at £2,500 until 31 March 2024

This determination extends the temporary ‘de minimis’ period until 31 March 2024. This means that monthly earnings of more than £2,500 over the amount where your Universal Credit payment stops, will be treated as ‘surplus earnings’. Your surplus earnings will be carried forward to the following month, where they will count towards your earnings.
