UC The Missing Payments


WHO IS THIS FOR:

An ideal course for those working in Income Teams and anyone who provides assistance to UC claimants

 

AIMS:

This training will work through real-life case studies to highlight the situations where claimants are missing out and consider the different practical ways a claimant can challenge mistakes and resolve ongoing issues. Because 'you don’t miss what you’ve never had' many claimants are under-claiming UC - and due to failings in the UC system they are also often not getting an increased award back paid. So this training will assist the learners to discover where and when this has happened and put it right.

 

OBJECTIVES:

  • Gain an understanding of where claimants are missing out
  • Build a deep understanding of how things should work in practice
  • Gain the knowledge and skills to successfully challenge the mistakes 
  • Gain the knowledge and skills to successfully get arrears paid back to the claimant

 

LEVEL:

Intermediate
