Eligibility for free early years entitlement for two-year-olds under universal credit

Published on 18 January 2018

The LITRG believe that this consultation lacks sufficient detail about how the net annual income threshold will work in practice against a monthly-assessed benefit. We also believe that the definition of ‘earned’ income for the threshold, how self-employed claimants subject to the Minimum Income Floor (MIF) will be treated for free early years education and how, from April 2018, those with surplus earnings will have their income assessed, need further consideration.
