star this property answer text <p>The Work and Pensions Secretary of State has a duty to review the Lower Benefit Cap levels once in each Parliament with regard to the national economic situation and any other matters he considers relevant, as set out in the 2016 Welfare Reform and Work Act. New lower and tiered Benefit Cap rates were introduced from November 2016 prior to the election in June 2017.

star this property answer text <p>The information is not available in the format requested. However, we do have data for the declaration date to payment date.</p><p> </p><p>Data published on 2 October 2017 shows that, 81% of new Universal Credit households received their first payment in full and on time. Across the whole of Universal Credit 92% of all households received full payment on time. The published data can be found here. <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/universal-credit-payment-timeliness-january-to-june-2017" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/universal-credit-payment-timeliness-january-to-june-2017</a></p><p> </p><p>The policy intention is that claimants receive the first payment 5 weeks after their date of entitlement (6 weeks if waiting days are served). This mirrors the world of work and allows for time in which to gather information about a claimant’s earnings.</p><p> </p><p>Our internal data shows that for those cases where full payment has not been made, around a sixth, have not signed their Claimant Commitment or passed identity checks . The others have outstanding verification issues, for example, housing, self-employed earnings and child-care costs.</p><p> </p>
