    Universal Credit The Minimum Income Floor Advice 11th May 18 at 1:26 PM
    Hello, everyone, I could do with some advice. I have been self-employed for over 12 months and the Minimum Income Floor has been applied. I have been receiving 0 from then on. I do still phone the Universal Credit number every month declaring my self-earrings.

    Has anyone else been in this situation? I would be grateful for any advice. If there is any.

    Thanks for reading

    If your business is still not making enough to pay a live g wage after 12 months perhaps you should think about doing something eked?

    Universal credit may close your claim due to nil earnings, as it is currently pointless. They assume monthly net income of about 1100 (MIF) and you are earning less than that.

    Suggest you book a self employment review with the Job Centre, as there may be help available.
    The comments I post are personal opinion. Always refer to official information sources before relying on internet forums. If you have a problem with any organisation, enter into their official complaints process at the earliest opportunity, as sometimes complaints have to be started within a certain time frame.
