star this property answer text <p>Entitlement to Universal Credit is calculated in monthly assessment periods. The amount of Universal Credit paid reflects, as closely as possible, the actual circumstances of a household each assessment period, including any earnings reported by the employer during that assessment period. Monthly reporting allows the award to be adjusted on a monthly basis, which ensures that if a claimant’s income falls, they will not have to wait several months for a rise in their Universal Credit.</p><p> </p><p>Wherever possible, employed earnings are received through the Real Time Information (RTI) system used by employers to report Pay As You Earn (PAYE) data to HMRC. RTI enables a claimant’s award to be automatically adjusted to reflect their earnings, which eases the reporting burden on claimants.</p><p> </p> more like this
