Q&A: If I claim benefits as a self employed person will this money be deducted from my grant?

1 min read


Unfortunately, it is not clear whether any universal credit or other benefit payments will be deducted from the self employment support grant that you should receive in June.

My guess is that they won’t be, but that is just a guess. If more information is released I will update this answer.
