answer text
<p>The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, my right hon. Friend the Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr Duncan Smith), has not commissioned any studies or research reports on the problems caused in the present social security system by the need to adjust to monthly frequency of payment for those entering employment.</p><p>A key aspect of universal credit is that it should mimic work and receipt of a salary. In order to help households understand what money they receive overall and how the work they do affects it, universal credit will be paid monthly. This reflects the fact that 75% of people are paid earnings monthly in arrears. Monthly payment of benefit will also prepare households for the reality of budgeting on a monthly income, will ease the</p><p>transition into work, and will make it easier for households to take advantage of cheaper tariffs for essential costs such as utility bills.</p>
