star this property answer text <p>Providing support for a maximum of two children in tax credits and Universal Credit encourages families who receive benefits to make the same financial choices as those supporting themselves solely through work. We recognise that some claimants are not able to make the same choices about the number of children in their family and have put exceptions in place in these circumstances.</p><p> </p><p>In the year from 6 April 2017 to 2 April 2018, there were 200 exceptions granted across Scotland in Universal Credit (10 households) and Child Tax Credit (190 households). Further breakdowns by geographic area are not available.</p><p> </p><p>This information can be found in the statistical release ‘Child Tax Credit and Universal Credit claimants: statistics related to the policy to provide support for a maximum of 2 children, April 2018’ at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/child-tax-credit-and-universal-credit-claimants-statistics-related-to-the-policy-to-provide-support-for-a-maximum-of-2-children-april-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/child-tax-credit-and-universal-credit-claimants-statistics-related-to-the-policy-to-provide-support-for-a-maximum-of-2-children-april-2018</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The information requested about the number of families who will not be exempt is not readily available and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The majority of claimants have their benefits paid into a bank account. As most bank accounts can be accessed at the Post Office, most claimants are able to withdraw cash, deposit cash and cheques, and make balance enquiries at a Post Office counter via its network of 11,600 branches. Sub-postmasters will continue to receive revenue from those transactions while maintaining footfall.</p><p> </p><p>In line with our wider policy on financial inclusion, we have always made it clear that payment into a bank, building society or credit union is the preferred way for Universal Credit to be paid. This reflects the vision for Universal Credit mirroring the world of work, where, for example, an employer requires a bank account for a salary to be paid into.</p> more like this
