Reply To: Unusual CTR Schemes


the LA i live in had this – basically treating UC as a passporting benefit regardless of income received
Seemed quite an expensive approach and quite unpopular -eg
a working age couple , 2 kids , no housing costs, could earn £30k a year and get £40 a month UC – their £2000 ctax a year is covered in full
Couple next door are in the same boat but without UC – they don’t qualify for any CTS…..
its quite a shock for couple 1 whern the do float off UC

Unusaual for a working age scheme to be more generous than pensioner schemes, but this one is.
