About this course:
Renting UC claimants should have a Housing Costs Element included when their award is assessed.

But many aren’t receiving one, or if they are, not as much as they are entitled to!

We've been busy creating two new courses - one looking at how it's calculated and the other examining who can (and can’t get it), untidy tenancies, and what happens when someone is away from home, or moves home.

Both courses highlight what is going wrong—as well as hints and tips on how to put it right.

Aimed at: Housing professionals, and advisers working with benefit claimants.

With a quick final quiz at the end so you can test yourself on what you have learned.

A basic knowledge of Universal Credit is assumed.

About this course
The SDP Gateway Condition that prevented some disabled claimants from claiming UC was revoked on 27th January 2021.

The Gateway was put in place to ensure these claimants were not made worse off by claiming UC as they would have lost entitlement to the Severe Disability Premium.

Instead many should now receive a Transitional SDP Element in their Max UC amount when their UC is assessed.

This E-Learning course will take you through which claimants are entitled to this Element, how much and how a change in circumstances can 'erode' it or end it altogether. As well as particular issues for couples and those awarded PIP after their claim for UC.

Aimed at: Housing professionals, and advisers working with benefit claimants.

With a quick final quiz at the end so you can test yourself on what you have learned.

A basic knowledge of Universal Credit is assumed.
