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

* Special rules apply to those claimants affected by the minimum income floor.

Any net earnings from employment or self-employment, above the claimant's work allowance will reduce the claimant's Universal Credit award by 63%.

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