Hello. I'm aware of £6000 savings limit before deductions. For some reason this £6000 hasn't changed for the past 10yrs or so. My question is, if my child has few thousand pounds in their account, can UC assume that this is my money and deduct some from my UC claim? Let's say I have £6000 in my savings and my child has another £6000 . What happens then thank you?

    The savings limit for children is £3,000. If you have access to those savings then there could be issues. Savings is a Junior ISA are ignored because they can't access them until they are 18.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
