star this property answer text <p>The administrative exercise to check whether claimants are eligible for more support under Personal Independence Payments, following the MH and RJ legal judgments, started in June 2018. DWP published management information on progress on checking potentially affected cases in December 2018. These figures showed that around 140,000 cases had been reviewed and cleared (as at 23<sup>rd</sup> November 2018). Figures are changing rapidly as we continue to check cases and progress is in line with our expectations. As part of December’s release, we committed to providing further updates at 6 monthly intervals.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department recognises that carers provide invaluable support for relatives, partners and friends who may be ill, frail or disabled. As such, there is an additional amount of benefit payable in Universal Credit to support carers who provide care of 35 hours or more each week for a severely disabled person. For claimants who meet these requirements an additional 160.20 per month is included in their Universal Credit entitlement for caring.</p><p> </p><p>Carer’s Allowance is also available to provide a measure of financial support for those who give up full-time employment to care for a severely disabled person for at least 35 hours a week. The rate of Carer’s Allowance has increased from £53.90 in 2010 to £66.15 a week, meaning an additional £635 a year for carers since 2010.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises that childcare costs can affect parents’ decisions to take up paid work or increase their working hours. We are committed to helping parents into work.</p><p> </p><p>To overcome this barrier to employment, Universal Credit claimants are able to claim up to 85 per cent of their childcare costs, compared to 70% on the legacy system. This can be claimed up to a month before starting a job, and can be worth up to £13,000 a year for families with two children.</p><p> </p><p>Over the last few months we have been trialling a more flexible approach to parents who do not report their childcare costs on time. Following a successful pilot, we are now updating our guidance, so that Work Coaches have more flexibility and discretion to support parents’ claims for this essential service.</p><p> </p><p>The Universal Credit childcare policy also aligns with the wider government childcare offer, which includes free childcare hours and tax free childcare.</p> more like this

Although Jobcentre staff can also signpost claimants in writing to a food bank in line with national guidance, they are not required to maintain records on whether a customer has been issued with a signposting slip.
