Boris Johnson hails £1k Universal Credit cash hitting bank accounts from TODAY
The Sun says BORIS Johnson hailed working Brits getting to keep more of their own money as the Universal Credit cash hits bank accounts from TODAY.
The PM said he was “committed to making work pay” as the harsh taper rate was slashed in a victory for The Sun’s Make Universal Credit Work campaign.
As part of the Chancellor’s Budget surprise, he confirmed the benefit penalty would be cut to allow working families to keep more of their earnings.
The defacto tax cut will be worth £2.2billion to two million low earners – seeing them an average of £1,000 better off.
The cash will start coming into bank accounts from today, in a Christmas boost for around two million this month.
