However, people can simply return their winter fuel payment to the office that issues it. They can also write to the Department requesting not to receive a winter fuel payment for future years, either in advance of first getting a payment, or after they have received one or more payments.</p><p> </p><p>Anyone aged 75 or over is entitled to a free TV Licence for their main address. The free licence is not issued automatically and needs to be applied for. Once issued, licences are renewed automatically every year unless the customer does not have a National Insurance Number in which case TV Licensing will contact them to confirm their circumstances have not changed each year. An over 75 licence can be cancelled at any time and a paid-for licence requested.</p><p> </p><p>The concessionary travel benefit is optional. An eligible person can choose not to take up the entitlement. The National Travel Survey 2011 shows that in GB, 79 per cent of people eligible for an older persons' bus pass held one.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>In 2013, the department recruited a new Commercial Director who has reviewed the department's commercial capability and capacity. The review took account of the views and policy steers from the Efficiency and Reform Group (ERG), the Chief Procurement Officer and Crown Representatives.</p><p> </p><p>The review found that whilst there are areas of high capability, in some of the most complex contract areas there is a need to improve the capability and capacity of the department's commercial function and people. In line with Civil Service Reform and the ERG-led Procurement Reform programme, the department initiated a commercial improvement programme. The programme completed a commercial skills survey in October 2013. It also restructured the commercial organisation where assessment of current practice against the standards of the NAO contract management model was also conducted.</p><p> </p><p>The commercial improvement programme will strengthen commercial capability by developing and running training to underpin contract management capability and fill identified current skills gaps. Further improvement actions will be informed by the report of an independent assessment of the department's contract management capability, currently being conducted by Price Waterhouse Coopers. The department's commercial capability will also be evaluated by a review team as part of a new ERG programme during 2014.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>The Department published its estimates of the proportion of claimants to personal independence payment (PIP) who will be in receipt of both the enhanced rates on 19 December 2012, <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/180964/pip-reassessments-and-impacts.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/180964/pip-reassessments-and-impacts.pdf</a>. By May 2018 we estimate that 23% of claimants will be receiving both the enhanced rates. In comparison, we estimate that the proportion receiving both the higher rates of disability living allowance without the introduction of PIP would be 16%.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>We recognise that some people will need help with the new demands of UC. This could include understanding the new system, help with getting online, and help with managing on a monthly budget and paying rent.</p><p> </p><p>Central to the Local Support Service Framework is the “Delivery Partnerships Approach” under which DWP and local authority managers and service providers (such as Social Landlords and Charities) will work together to agree upon delivery of services at the local level. This will enable the provision of a joined-up, holistic service for claimants with complex needs and a “coherent claimant journey” for helping the claimant move from welfare dependency. Wherever appropriate, this may also result in work readiness for each claimant.</p> more like this
