    You will need to give some more information before anyone can advise you.

    If your UC has been reduced to zero are you living with a partner that works? Do you work?

    Are you able to tell us exactly what it says on your UC statement? This will help us to understand a little more as to what has happened.

    Please make sure you do not include personal information like full name, NI numbers etc. 
    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.
