When claimants make the Department aware of their disability, Universal Credit will offer support in jobcentres to make and manage their claims on-line, and also to acquire or improve core digital skills. DWP has also rolled out the Universal Support initiative alongside the national roll out of Universal Credit, as part of which Local Authorities deliver both digital and budgeting support.</p><p> </p><p>Where claimants have no capability to make or manage their claim on-line, telephone and face to face support is available.

unstar this property answer text <p>There are differences between sanctions policy in Universal Credit and other benefits. It is for this reason that the sanction rate in Universal Credit cannot be compared with the sanction rate in, for example, JSA.</p><p> </p><p>For instance, under JSA if a claimant fails to attend a Work Coach meeting, after 5 days without making contact they would have their claim terminated. Under Universal Credit these claimants are sanctioned – their standard allowance is reduced - but they continue to receive other elements that they are entitled to, which might cover children and housing amongst other things. Accordingly, the numbers of sanctions will appear higher in Universal Credit.</p><p> </p><p>However, the policy intent behind this difference is not to sanction more people but to ensure that all payment is not terminated, and that other elements continue to be in payment while we investigate the reason for the loss of contact with the claimant.</p> more like this

They will not need to have a face-to-face assessment, and will be treated as having limited capability for work-related activity and will be placed in the Support Group, where they are not required to take part in any work-related activity. We also have fast track rules which mean their claim must be processed as soon as possible, and they receive the higher rate of benefit immediately.</p> more like this
