Capital and universal credit

CPAG in Scotland

This event is in the past

Not having too much ‘capital’ is a basic condition to get universal credit. Capital can include property, savings, investments and lump sum payments. Advising correctly on how capital affects entitlement depends on identifying whether it can be disregarded and what value it has. Capital can even affect entitlement when people no longer have it.

This course covers:

How capital affects universal credit entitlement

What counts as capital

How capital is valued

When and what capital can be disregarded

What happens if capital is spent or given away
