Hi, I got switched over from ESA to UC start of sept, I was dreading it as I'd heard all the horror stories and I worked permitted hours whilst i was on ESA which i thought I'd have to stop or take a f/t job. Turned out that it was a fairly straight forward process and that I could carry on with my job and that they were happy with me and i wouldn't be pestered by a "job coach" What they couldn't tell me, for some reason, is how much can I earn before deductions come out of my UC. So, I get the standard £317pm. I work and earn around £110 p/w I got my first payment recently and there were no deductions. I have been told that UC take 63p in every pound over (?) you earn. How does this work? I asked but they couldn't tell me, told me to go CAB.
