star this property answer text <p>The pilot aims to assist asylum applicants who have been granted leave to remain in the UK to make contact with DWP at the earliest opportunity. Once a customer who has been granted leave to remain in the UK ceases to be eligible for UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) financial support they will be contacted by UKVI to establish whether they would like any assistance with making an appointment with DWP. If they indicate that they would need assistance then UKVI will contact DWP on their behalf to make an appointment for them to attend their nearest jobcentre. UKVI will relay the details of this appointment back to the customer and will ensure that they are aware of the information that they need to take with them.</p><p> </p><p>The pilot is expected to run to the end of February 2017 and will be reviewed to determine if this additional support has facilitated a better transition from asylum support to mainstream benefits. This will then inform the length of support UKVI should provide to all asylum applicants who are granted leave to remain. DWP will write to the Work and Pensions Select Committee with an update later this year.</p>
