universal credit and redundancy
in Redundancy & redundancy planning
1 reply 262 views
Hi, the company I worked for went into administration on March 27th, four days before payday (monthly). I had no income from the end of Feb until my first universal credit payment in May. I received that and then, during May, I got a redundancy payment of £1500 which was less than half a months wage. I was then not given any universal credit payment in June. I asked for a review and was still knocked back as they said that I had earnings paid to me even though I had not worked since redundancy and it was part of the money that I was owed. Is this correct? If I had received a payment on the day I left then my universal credit would have not stopped from the time that I first applied for it. Can anyone help as I am going to need help with my rent this month and I am being told that they can do a thorough review but it can take up to thirty days. I have only just found another job but dont get paid until the 7th of the month. Thanks in advance
