    Universal Credit Trigger? 17th May 19 at 4:00 PM
    Hi,

    I have the opportunity to take on some self employed work (am currently at home looking after the kids...so not working and not looking). For about 10 - 18 hours a week. My partner and I have a current claim for Child Tax Credit only and he works for 40 hours a week.

    If I take the work will we be migrated to Universal Credit?

    Thanks

    Thank you.

    If the worst happened and the self employment contract was ended would that force a move to Universal credit?
