On-line Workshop: Calculating UC - The Elements
Many Universal Credit claimants are not receiving all the UC they are entitled to due to errors and omissions when their UC award is assessed.

This Workshop looks at the various Elements that make up a claimant's Maximum UC award. It focuses on the problem areas where claimant's could be missing out and how a claimant can rectify this.

This Workshop will give participants the information they need to help a claimant check whether their Maximum UC figure has been assessed correctly or not.
