Universal credit standard allowance

Back

This is the basic allowance, which is always included in your award.

The standard allowance has been increased this year (by the equivalent of £20 a week) because of the coronavirus outbreak.  

 

The standard allowance is a monthly figure. The amount you are entitled to depends on your age and whether you are claiming as a single person or jointly:

  • single person aged under 25 – £342.72

  • single person aged 25 or over – £409.89

  • joint claimants both aged under 25 – £488.59

  • joint claimants where either is aged 25 or over – £594.04
