Help is on the way.
They cant apply for universal credit if they have savings though.
He says that further help from the government is on the way this week, but to apply for universal credit in the mean time
Hope they get some, presently they have been left in the cold
It will come later in week, when they enforce a full lockdown as a result of people continuing to not act responsibly
Yes they can.
They won’t be entitled to any if the savings are over £16k.
For savings between £6k and £16k there’s a calculated reduction.
for anyone already in receipt of tax credits who will move to UC the government have suspended the capital rules.
please don’t give advice that’ll stop people getting help they need
This is the full lockdown.... I can’t see how anything more could be policed or followed up.
The final step is closing non-essential businesses that are unable to work from home and not allowing people to go out more than so far from their homes.
That’s what they’ve had to do in Italy.
I really hope it doesn’t come to that, though. People need to behave now.
you only have to see the pics of people on the tube this morning to see it needs more, I've no doubt as well in due course reports of food shops etc will follow.
it needs reducing to essential only and the list of essential reducing too.
I do agree with your point about Policing though
Didn't know that.
The very problem is going via universal credit.....unless the govt. can miraculously speed up the process.
They struggle as it is now but just think of the influx of an extra, 1% of our population applying for this help.
Self employed people to get 80% of their salary, due to be announced tomorrow.
Rumoured to be 80% of average earnings over last 3 years.
Hope all you self employed folk put all your money through the books!
If they didnt I cant say I have too much sympathy
Couldn't agree more.
That's what I was hoping they would do. Happy with that TBH.
same here, seems a good outcome if true and it comes quickly, the mrs is self employed however her business is only part of the family income, the part where we can have nice things above the mortgage and bills etc so whilst we aren’t desperate £800 - £1000 a month is a massive chunk to lose overnight
I really feel for those in your situation, god speed and keep the tunes alive JP
Wonder of that would have the same cap as the employed rate does? Lot of elf employed people have a lot of overheads. Either way I think it would be a good outcome
What if someone is still able to do 50% of their work?
