How much can I get from a Universal Credit hardship payment?
The DWP works out a daily rate for the amount of your hardship payment. This is roughly 60 per cent of the amount of the sanction. The amount of your hardship payment you get is the daily rate multiplied by the number of days the sanction lasts.
A hardship payment is only paid for a limited number of days. If you need another hardship payment after this, you’ll have to reapply.
