Issues with being Part Time and claiming Universal Credit.
at the start of the year, I made the decision to go part time and claim universal credit due to my health condition. I was advised to completely give up work but that is something I'm not prepared to do just yet. Anyway, since i made the change I've had nothing but issues with my work declaring more than I'm actually earning, this means my benefits are cut short than they should be, this month in particular my work has declared I've earned 2+ months earnings that I actually picked up. as an example I earn £650 a month working 16 hours a week, my work declared this month that I earned £1300, in which I received £5 from universal credit. my payslip says the correct amount I got paid which was £650. I've raised this issue with universal credit who in turn said they cant alter the payment because HMRC was told that's my earnings this month, so i spoke to work who said they don't pay my, its SD Worx, they have raised an issue but Sd Worx have now said they didn't declare that, so i called HMRC who said they don't have any communication with universal credit, so my question is, and I'm sorry you've had to read this far just for this, what can i do here? i paid my rent and important bills with my wages, and now have absolutely nothing to live on, and when i say nothing... I mean I have nothing.
