A number of benefits are being phased out and being replaced with Universal Credit. These benefits include Housing, Child Tax, Income Support, Income-related Employment and Support Allowance and Working Tax Credit. Other benefits include Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance and Child Tax Credit. This is why before you proceed with the ECO scheme 2020, you’ll want to take a second look at your benefits paperwork.
On October 1st of 2018, the caps on household’s income were removed. In turn, everyone who had Universal Credit was able to request a home insulation grant. Bear in mind that you might have to show proof of your benefits.
The standard allowance for Universal Credit is usually £251.77 for an adult. For two adults, the allowance is £498.89. There might be other conditions that are applied.
