unstar this property answer text <p>We set out our position on Severe Disability Premium (SDP) transitional payments for claimants in a Written Statement <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2019-01-11/HCWS1243/" target="_blank">HCWS1243</a> on 11 January 2019 and in the revised sets of regulations which were laid on 14 January 2019.</p><p> </p><p>The draft Universal Credit (Managed Migration Pilot and Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2019 contain provision to ensure that eligible claimants who had previously been in receipt of the SDP but who moved onto Universal Credit before 16 January 2019, following a change in their circumstances, will be considered for a SDP transitional amount. The provisions will include on-going monthly payments and an additional lump-sum to cover the period since they moved to Universal Credit.</p><p> </p><p>These regulations are subject to parliamentary debate, therefore, we are not able to provide a date of when these will come in to force. Once the regulations are in place we will begin the process of assessing eligible claimants and make payments where appropriate. We aim to have offered all eligible claimants this additional lump-sum within six months of the regulations being approved by Parliament.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>In April 2017 we published the Improving Lives: Helping Workless Families paper which outlined the actions we plan to take in supporting the most vulnerable families.</p><p>This included the launch of an innovative new programme to address parental conflict as this is a critical influence on the quality of parenting. Children exposed to frequent, intense and poorly resolved conflict between parents are at greater risk of poor social, emotional and cognitive outcomes. The new programme will support the use of evidence-based interventions to reduce parental conflict, delivered by specialist organisations at a local level. This will transform lives by supporting parents, whether they are together or separated.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Our primary goal is to help care leavers get into work wherever possible and our interventions are tailored to achieve this. Care leavers aged between 18 and 21 have the opportunity to join the Work Programme from day one of their benefit claim, so that they receive tailored, locally-appropriate employment support at the earliest opportunity. We also provide additional support, over and above the standard Jobcentre Plus offer, to young claimants, including care leavers, aged 18-24. Work Coaches tailor interventions to the needs of the individual to address a variety of barriers to work, including improving job search skills, referral to skills and other work-related training such as Traineeships, Apprenticeships and work experience.</p><p>We have safeguards in place for care leavers along with other claimants who may be considered vulnerable. Work Coaches support all claimants with complex needs, or who require additional support, to ensure that they fully understand what they have been asked to do to enable them to access DWP benefits and use our services.</p><p>Care leavers, like all claimants, take ownership of planning how they will meet their requirements and ultimately secure employment. They will be supported by their Work Coach who will assist them in meeting their requirements through providing encouragement and direction, using a range of communication methods.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Payment into a bank, building society or credit union is the preferred way for Universal Credit to be paid. This reflects the notion of Universal Credit mirroring the world of work. For example, an employer would usually require a bank account for a salary to be paid into. The Post Office card account and the Government Payment Exception Service cannot be used for the receipt of wages and have no direct debit facility to support payment of housing costs and other bills.</p><p> </p><p>In April 2018 3,211 claims were receiving payments in to a Post Office Card Account and 15 claims were receiving payments via the Government Payment Exception Service method.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, there are a number of claimants receiving payments into another individual’s bank account but it is not possible to disaggregate this information from a wider dataset which includes, for example, accounts held in a person’s maiden name.</p> more like this
