This also works to represent high-tech/ultratech UBI. A low level of Independent Income might represent "credits" of various types or access to subsidized goods or services. The idea isn't to provide wealth with no work, but instead to boost monthly income to the point that someone who would otherwise be at Dead Broke or Poor moves up to Struggling status. Add a Quirk level Duty or Vow to model social pressures to not just live off of UBI alone.
