These monthly assessment periods aim to mirror the way the majority of employees are paid and allow for the Universal Credit award to be adjusted each month.</p><p> </p><p>No one will receive a lower award.

This will ease the reporting burden on claimants so that the amount they receive is not reduced.</p><p> </p><p>Where this hasn’t happened a claimant should reapply within 7 days to ensure no reduction in what they receive. Re-application requires claimants to update existing information.
