Can I continue claiming Universal Credit while working part-time? How much can I earn a week and continue to receive U.C?

I am 20 and want to apply to do Apprenticeships. Some of them pay really low like £150 every week. I live at home with my parents but I still have to give my parents rent money. Would I still be able to receive Universal Credit just until I’ve completed my Apprenticeship and they give me a better salary or review my salary to a higher one after 6 months, whichever one they decide?


@boy boy I don’t give a **** what you did with your life. In your day things were affordable. I can’t live on £600 a month. As I said I have to still give my parents rent/food money & I’ve been working full-time sick I was 16. Go and **** your self you ****!

    What does this have to do with travel?

    Universal Credit replaced the following benefits:

        Child Tax Credit

        Housing Benefit

        Income Support

        income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)

        income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)

        Working Tax Credit

    So at 20 yrs old, living at home it is unlikely you are eligible for any of those
