Latest data, published 12 November in the Benefit Sanction Statistics, shows that in August 2018, 2.9% of people subject to conditionality on Universal Credit had a deduction taken from their benefit award as a result of a sanction.</p><p> </p><p>When considering whether a sanction is appropriate, a Decision Maker will take all the claimant’s individual circumstances, including any health conditions or disabilities and any evidence of good cause, into account before deciding whether a sanction is warranted.</p> more like this

In addition, a further prompt will be sent after 7 days if no interview has been booked.</p><p> </p><p>Cavendish Court Jobcentre went live with Universal Credit full service on 7 November.</p><p> </p><p>The average waiting period at Cavendish Court Jobcentre for initial interview (working days) was as follows:</p><p> </p><p>W/E 16/11 – 3 days</p><p>W/E 23/11 – 5 days</p><p>W/E 30/11 – 2 days</p><p> </p><p>For comparison, the average waiting period within the District of South Yorkshire for initial interview (working days) was as follows:</p><p> </p><p>W/E 16/11 – 3 days</p><p>W/E 23/11 – 3 days</p><p>W/E 30/11 – 2 days</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We strive to deliver a quick and effective service to all claimants. Claimants have 30 days in which to make contact to book an initial interview. The closer the date of the initial interview is to the end of the 30 day period could potentially impact on the date a first payment is made. In many cases where full payment is not made on time, it is due to unresolved issues such as claimants not accepting their Claimant Commitment or passing identity checks, satisfying the Habitual Residency Test, or having outstanding verification issues, such as housing costs and self-employed earnings.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Passengers who are delayed due to the cancellation of a scheduled train service but who have to travel on a subsequent train or take a taxi to complete their journey should be entitled to compensation in accordance with the Train Operating Company’s (TOC’s) published Passenger’s Charter. The passenger’s arrival time at their destination should determine their entitlement to Delay Repay compensation.</p><p> </p><p>The majority of TOCs operate the Delay Repay compensation system which provides compensation to the value of 50% of the ticket price for delays or cancellations when the passenger is delayed in reaching their destination by 30-59 minutes. Delay Repay 15 (DR15) additionally entitles passengers who have been delayed by 15-29 minutes to compensation worth 25% of the ticket price. The next TOC to introduce this will be Northern expected by the end of December.</p><p> </p><p>The rail industry has also recently launched the new Rail Ombudsman service, which will give passengers a stronger voice and help ensure they get a fair deal when disputes with train operators cannot otherwise be resolved.</p><p> </p>
