just signed up for universal credit and given award today. I currently on sick leave from work. So this month's amount is £546 they have deducted £678 from my 1209 allowance due every my £735 monthly salary and we receive carers allowance. This month my salary halves to 435 so this plus the 546 universal credit. My rent is 500 a month. I was getting 455 child tax credits plus 348 housing benefit. How do they expect people to survive and not go into debt. My statutory sick pay is due to run out and that's why I signed up universal credit to claim ESA
