UC customers who are in work and have responsibility for a child or have limited capability for work will see their work allowances increase from:
Previously for every working UC customer, every £1 earned over their work allowance was reduced (known as the UC earnings taper) by 63p and deducted automatically from any UC entitlement.

This also means that customers who may not have qualified for Universal Credit may now qualify.
