Universal credit and disability: extra amounts

Universal credit and disability

If you have a limited capability for work-related activity’, a work capability amount is included in your universal credit award.

If you have a disabled child, a disabled child addition may be included in your award.

If you pay for a registered childminder in order to stay in work, a childcare costs amount may be included in your award. If you have a partner, you normally both have to be in paid work to get this amount. However, only one of you needs to be in paid work if the other has a limited capability for work.
