There is no single level of income beyond which universal credit will no longer be paid. Universal credit claimants will have a maximum amount reflecting personal circumstances such as housing costs, responsibility for dependent children and other needs. This maximum amount will be reduced to take account of certain types of earned and unearned income and income from capital.

http://www.dwp.gov.uk/docs/ucpbn-1-additions.pdf for disabled people who have limited capability for work or limited capability for work and work-related activity, there will be an additional element included in the maximum amount. We have also said that there will be a disregard of net earnings of up to £7,000 a year in such cases.
