Universal Credit cut: did the Tories fail to assess the harm it will do because they already know?

Last Updated: September 12, 2021By Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This is fairly straightforward.


But other people have assessed the impact and this is what they say:

Here’s another take on it:

So poverty will rocket and the sick will take the biggest hit.

And the Tories are hoping to avoid criticism by saying they haven’t done an official impact assessment.

It’s like children looking away from a huge mess and telling their parents they don’t see anything wrong.

    Women denied state pension from 60 to 66, now from 60 to 67 for 1960s born turning 60, are within the loss of £20 uplift to Universal Credit, as pensioner husbands cannot claim Pension Credit, because the wife is below risen pension age.

    Pension Credit did not require you to actively seek work to claim, and topped up low income.

    Low waged women, without a partner to help support them, are also hit by the loss of £20 uplift to UC, between ages 69 and 67.

    Then we have the highest ever redundancy rates of women aged in their 50s and 60s, with least chance of a new job, also hit by loss of £20 uplift of UC.
