star this property answer text <p>Entitlement to Universal Credit is determined by first assessing what a claimant qualifies for, for example, housing costs and caring responsibilities. This can include childcare of up to 85% of eligible costs, up to a limit of £1,108.04 for two or more children.</p><p>The conclusion that very few people are affected by the limits described comes from analysis using the DWP Policy Simulation Model, based on the Family Resources Survey. [The PSM is a static microsimulation model which describes the tax and benefit system of the GB population]. It produces financial outputs on a representative sample of the GB population simulating a policy. The analysis in question is based on forecasts which we produce for planning purposes and forecasting during fiscal events. It models the legacy and Universal Credit system, and in particular the childcare policy described above. Upon interrogation of the models, we found that while a handful of cases were affected by the limits above, the number of these were too few to report statistically.</p>
