The Real Time Information (RTI) system ensures that we get Universal Credit claims right by providing us with accurate and timely details of earnings and occupational pension payments from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC). The system is working well with over 99% of individual employment records now being reported in real time.
