    Latest case load numbers for UC

    730,000 claimants were in receipt of UC on 11 January 2018. This is a sharp percentage increase but still very low in terms of numbers.

    And about 4 million HB cases………………..

    Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is withered, the god of day goes down upon the dreary scene, and—and in short you are for ever floored.

    Its difficult to compare the two. 1 HB case can mean 2 people on UC.  In Bath it says that there are 5383 people on UC and our own stats show that there are only 2082 LCTS cases where someone receives UC.

    "When we have rolled out universal credit, we have done it in a manner that makes sense and works. Right now, 9% of those who will eventually end up on universal credit are on universal credit, and it will reach 11% by June this year."

    Clearly, for example a lot of the 4 million HB claims are pensioners and of course there are all the Tax Credit recipients who are not on HB BUT the DWP's estimates they are currently on about 10% of the final caseload and of course that means drawing large numbers of 'in work' claimants into conditionality…………..
