To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many full service universal credit claimants have had their claims stopped each month due to a zero award.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.
13 February 2019
Below are the number/proportion of Universal Credit Full Service claims by the month of closure:
Number of claims closed due to zero award
As percentage of monthly caseload
Claim closed count rounded to the nearest 100 and the percentages to nearest 0.1%
Where the claimant had not confirmed their address prior to the case being closed, it has not been possible to exclude a small number of UC cases from Northern Ireland.
