When staff are required to travel during the course of official business they must do so in accordance with DWP Business Travel Policies and using DWP travel providers with agreed rates for hotels. Officials can claim meal subsistence for reimbursement of actual costs incurred up to specific policy limits and in line with HMRC rules. Where officials have longer term arrangements for detached duty they can only claim lodging expenses in line with agreed rates as per policy.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Where there has been a reported change in Paying Parents income which exceeds the 25% tolerance, the first step we would take is to obtain evidence to verify the income. Dependant on how the change is reported, this could be via the employer, receiving parent, HMRC or the Paying Parent. Where an income change is proven, the next step would be to complete a reassessment/supersession and pursue any arrears payments with the Paying Parent. All steps /actions will be specific to the detail of the case. Ultimately where there is evidence of criminal activity CMG can pursue a criminal prosecution through the CPS.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We recognise that the move to a single monthly household payment is a significant change and therefore for a minority of claimants, alternative payment arrangements can be provided to help them manage that change. These include: managed payment of the Universal Credit housing cost to landlords; making payments more frequently than monthly (e.g. twice monthly); and splitting the payment between partners within the household.</p><p> </p><p>Splitting payments between partners is normally considered to prevent hardship to a claimant and their family, for example if the Universal Credit claimant is not managing their financial affairs and cannot or will not budget for their own or their family’s basic day to day needs.</p><p> </p><p>We take seriously the need to support vulnerable claimants. Universal Credit provides enhanced personalised support for people by simplifying the benefits system. All claimants, including vulnerable claimants and those with mental health conditions, receive continuous tailored support managed through personal work coaches, who know each person’s case.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally we can offer Personal Budgeting Support which aims to prepare claimants for the financial changes Universal Credit brings. It provides transitional support to help them manage their monthly payments and prioritise essential bills, such as rent and utilities.</p>
