Following on from the query raised at the meeting re: payment arrangements for Universal Credit please find below the response from Paul Robson (Jobcentre Plus):
‘Couples living in the same household will receive one monthly payment between them; this can be paid into a joint account or a single account in either person’s name.
Any other adults living in the same household who are claiming Universal Credit will be paid separately.’
