Reply To: Farmers and Universal Credit


The farmers said they had explained all this to DWP but the latter did not seem to understand the issue.

There was an article about Uc and fraud and at one point it was mentioned that fraudsters do not try to say they are self employed. Too complicated and don’t get paid. So DWP will possibly try this as a win. To be fair there have been far too many nil incomes cases over the years in HB.

One other issue. The cost of HB including UC housing costs has broken above 30 billion. Wow
