If I am nearly over £16,000 in savings and my next payment just keeps me under said amount but I also get paid my rent money directly into my account to pay the landlord do I have to report it? It will be over £16,000 because of the rent money. I'm on universal credit.

    Benefits you receive for that month are not included in your savings until the end of your next assessment period. However, have you reported your savings of more than £6,000? There's a £4.35/month deduction for every £250 or part there of over that amount.
    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.
