I am hearing from cients how Universal Credit is also not fair.
If you have savings of over £16k you will not be eligible. Majority of them are reasonable and say ok, the Government does not have free money so if you have saving so one should use it.
But why they are frustrated is because some sef employed or employed individuas can have £50k of savings but they can still get the grant of up to £2.5k, however people with savings of £16k can not get thre £94.25 per week.
If the rational is to use your savings, that should have been a uniform rule
