edited January 29 in Universal Credit (UC)
Hi there back again just wanted someone to clear a few things up I received this through today and they asked me this a few months agoabd in still putting down the same amount. What it is I got an advance payment off my employer within the assesment period and when I declare my earnings it stated I don't have to put in advance payments off employer so I didn't but my previous employer has put it in with the advance on top. What's the reason this has come up again? They have gave me no information over the phone. Will I be sanctioned or could this effect anything? I might be jumping to conclusions but I'm just thinking it s a bit suspect why they are asking me this. I have just been entitled to lcwra. Either way I put a lower amount in without the advance off my employer and still entitled to 0 pounds universal Credit because it exceeded entitlement thanks

    Did your employer make an error when they reported your earnings to HMRC? If they did then you need to speak to your employer.

    What I don't understand is why you've been reporting your earnings to UC. You only need to do this if you're self employed. If you're PAYE then there's no need to report any earnings because UC check that with HMRC.
    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.

    Hi poppy I'm not sure. 

    I was with paye. When I check on my journal I can see what my employer reported as my earnings. So then they messaged me to confirm how much this is for. Then when I proceeded with the amount it states to not include any advances from my employer, I put 250 pound less than what they put as my employer included the advance. So heard nothing for months then today I requested a back payment from my case manager then ten mins later I got that^^^ so I don't know if it's pure coincidence or they are trying to gather everything together to see how much they owe me?

    You need to speak to your employer. UC will go off what your employer reported to HMRC.

    It won't affect your LCWRA and you can't be sanctioned when found to have LCWRA.
