Housing Systems: Combating poverty and sustaining tenancies.

NI Credits for LCW and Universal Credit

DATE: Wednesday 24th January 2024:  10.00am - 11.30am

Speakers: Jane Crawford and Julia Service

This webinar explores why some claimants may be missing out when they move onto UC.

Those with NI Credits for LCW should have their LCW/LCWRA status transferred to their UC award. 

But many claimants may have NI Credits for LCW and not realise it.

And because the UC system fails to pick them up many claimants miss out on the 'extras' in their UC award that they are entitled to, and end up having to go through the WCA process unnecessarily.



 Topics will include:

- Who will have NI Credits for LCW (and who should claim them)

- How having NI Credits for LCW impacts a UC award

- The different rules depending on when the 'claim' for NI Credits started

- Ensuring the DWP get it right and challenging them when they don't.


 An essential webinar for those working with working age claimants
