    Hi aalia and welcome to the Community.  It's nice to meet you.  I'm sorry, but I'm unable to answer your questions.  However, some of our members or one of the Scope Team may be best to advise you and if so, will post here.  Meantime, here is Scope's information on Universal Credit which may be useful - 


    Please keep in touch and let us know how you get on and all the best with Universal Credit.  :smile:

    Hi @aalia - Welcome to the community from me too. I hope the info given by Ails is helpful, but I'll also ask a member of the Scope team for advice, as also mentioned above. :)
    @Adrian_Scope please can you also help here, thank you.
