Can anyone point me in the direction of a UC uprating guidance as I can’t seem to find one anywhere.
If my understanding of the regs is correct, the uprating takes effect on the first day of the first assessment period on or after 9th April 2018 (obs this will be a different date in April 19).
Am trying to sort through a catalogue of error on calculations going back throughout last year. The payment decision clearly states the work allowance is £198 which is the 2018/19 rate but it appears that the calculation has been done manually on £192 which they are adamant is the correct rate (which is the 17/18 amount)
The assessment period in question is 10th March to 9th April 2018.
