Just been reading a reply to someone`s question on MoneySavingExpert.com forum about claiming UC alongside PIP and among the answers, someone told the poster that if they earn the equivalent of the NMW x 16 hours a week, which I calculated as £125.28p per week (£501.12 a month), that they should be placed in the `lite touch` of UC and not have to see a work coach or visit a job centre? Although they set the limit at £338 a month?

Has anyone on UC experienced this? I`m curious to know why if someone is working and they earn £338 a month that they get off the hook,so to speak when it comes to being contacted by a work coach or UC either in person or through the online journal? I was of the impression that unless someone earned enough to cover the upper limit of UC and also their housing costs, they would still have to look for `more` work or more `hours`? Not sure what to believe!
