The “triple wami” of living expenses for low-income families will be 300 worse this fall.
This amount includes the elimination of the £ 20 universal credit lift, the increase in the projected energy bill and the prevention of rising wages due to rising inflation.
The researchers looked at how these changes could affect two types of low-income households.
The first was a single parent who worked part-time for a minimum wage – and the second was a parent who worked full-time with two children.
Both families were expected to cut Universal Credit by 20 a week, which was set aside to help people with the corona virus epidemic – but will begin withdrawing it next week. ۔

However, some Tory MPs have expressed reservations, including former Conservative Party leader and Universal Credit architect Sir Ian Duncan Smith.
He said the ministers knew there was a problem and urged them to “cut the bullet”.
Sir Ain told the Daily Telegraph: “While I welcome any extra money, I wonder why there is no universal credit recipient.
