star this property answer text <p>The information requested is shown in the table below:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Claims Cleared in 5 working days</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Jobseekers Allowance</p></td><td><p>351,081</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Employment &amp; Support Allowance</p></td><td><p>385,934</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>This information is not collected in relation to Universal Credit. The assessment period and payment structure of Universal Credit is fundamentally different to the legacy benefits it is replacing. The first payment is made 5 weeks after the initial application (6 weeks if waiting days are served). This mirrors the world of work and allows for a 1 month assessment period in which to gather information about a claimant’s earnings.</p> more like this
