    The maximum UC entitlement is made up of adding together the different bits that apply to her claim (the standard allowance plus the housing element). Once added together it is all just UC, the different parts are not treated separately. 
    The earnings deduction is in applied to the maximum amount. Whatever is left is the amount of UC that is paid.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
