Universal credit & previous earnings

Just wondering if anyone who receives universal credit has been asked to confirm their previous years earnings?

    Hi @shrops2019 and welcome to the community. Everybody does at some point (usually after their first assessment period) and it's done to determine whether you're exempt from the benefit cap.

    I hope that helps, but let me know if you have anymore questions!
