Income & Savings: Earnings
It is the actual earnings paid (or for self-employment - gross profits made) in each of the claimant's Monthly Assessment Periods that the DWP will use when assessing the claimant's entitlement to Universal Credit.

Any earnings from employment or self-employment, above the claimant's work allowance will reduce the claimant's Universal Credit award by 65% of the amount above the work allowance.

This means that as earnings fluctuate, the claimant's Universal Credit award will also fluctuate.
