star this property answer text <p>Universal Credit was designed to simplify the benefits system and focus on getting people into work and supporting in-work progression. It has a much simpler age-related structure which aligns the rates for claimants who are under the age of 25 years. By setting a clear benefit rate for under 25s this reflects the lower wages that younger workers typically receive. This is intended to maintain the incentive for younger people to find work.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Additional amounts that are added to provide for particular needs such as children and disability are paid at a standard rate.</p> more like this
