Not everyone who gets Universal Credit is entitled to free NHS prescriptions and dental treatment.
Universal Credit claimants are only entitled if their earnings in their last assessment period were:
- £435 or less
- £935 or less if their Universal Credit includes a payment for a child or they have limited capability for work or work-related activity
Incorrect claims for free prescriptions and dental treatment may result in a penalty charge notice.
