    Hi,

    Your question has already been answered on your other thread here https://community.scope.org.uk/discussion/67360/payment#latest

    The only difference is that in your other thread you said you were receiving 3 wages during this assessment period because you have 2 jobs.

    The advice is still the same because you don't have a work allowance then any income receive during your assessment period will reduce your UC by 63p for every £1 you earn. The more you earn during the assessment period then the less UC you will receive. If your UC is reduced to zero at anytime then your UC will be closed and you'll need to sign into your journal and make a rapid reclaim.

    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.

    I'm afraid there's nothing at all you can do because with UC it really does depend on your earnings during an assessment period.

    Hi @tinka1992xxxx. Have you worked this out by marking them off on a calendar? Even with two jobs it shouldn't happen as often as 4 times in a year if you're paid 4 weekly. 
    If you're able to share your assessment period dates and your most recent wage dates I'd be happy to double check this for you.

    The job where you are paid 4 weekly, this should happen twice a year. Monthly pays shouldn't have anymore than 1 pay during an assessment period.

    You said it happened again in December? when did it happen before that?

    4 weekly pay should only happen twice a year. In another thread of yours say said you've got 2 jobs, since that thread, have you taken on another job meaning you now have 3 jobs?
