NEW UNIVERSAL CREDIT-THE TRICKY PARTS 2019

All our courses are updated to include changes in the Benefits System. Courses can be run at a basic or more experienced level and usually last one day.

As Universal Credit (full service) is rolled out,  more and more problems are arising. Underpayments, rent arrears, debt, misadvice,  poor administration and the impact on vulnerable clients are major concerns.

This course is an update course to help you understand the common problems and solutions for your clients/ service.

This will include-

  • migration onto Universal Credit,  including transitional protection rules and severe disability premium issues
  • losers and winners- calculation examples and practise
  • Full service and using the journal- what to put where,  a chance to exchange information
  • maintaining the claim, conditionality and sanctions
  • claiming as sick
  • other current issues such as frequency of wage payments- weekly,  fortnightly and 4 weekly
  • a checklist of changes
  • a checklist of the many problems associated with Universal Credit

It is aimed at those who understand the Universal Credit Basics but want to improve their ability to offer solutions and to share working practise with others.
