To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what assessment the Government has made of the effect of the Self Employed Income Support Scheme on the income of claimants of universal credit.
Universal Credit takes into account income in the assessment period (AP) it is received. Payments from the Self-employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS) is treated as self-employed earnings in UC and we will take them into account when they are received. We will not therefore need to readjust previous months’ awards.
