That's very clear. Take home pay after £379 does affect UC.

But, what about the housing element of UC and also the enhanced portion of UC, if you get those.  Or is it treated simply as one big lump sum, your UC monthly amount and the £379 figure applies to the total?

How are they affected by earnings?

Many thanks
Lottie
