This work is managed nationally and outstanding decisions can be moved around virtually to different locations if necessary. Currently in Hordan House, there is capacity to clear the allocated Work Capability Assessment decisions each week and also import decision work from the network on a regular basis. If support is needed work can be moved out, across the network, but this is not usually necessary in Birkenhead.</p><p> </p><p>Other staff within Hordan House are currently deployed on Maternity Allowance (MA). Staffing levels are reviewed regularly to meet the demand of our customers and, following a recent review, a decision was made to increase the staffing deployed to MA, supporting Birkenhead with the clearance of MA applications.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Our deductions policy strikes a fair balance between a claimant’s need to meet their obligations and a claimant’s ability to ensure they can meet their day-to-day needs. From October 2019, deductions will be capped at 30% of a claimant’s standard allowance down from 40% to better achieve this balance.</p><p> </p><p>In the scenario outlined, if a person has no other deductions, the most that would be deducted for a court fine in the following assessment period is £108.35. This is because the maximum deduction for court fines is based on a fixed figure in regulations rather than a percentage. If the £108.35 figure were more than 30% of the claimant’s standard allowance, the deduction would be reduced to 5% of the standard allowance, ensuring the 30% cap was not exceeded. The policy was designed to deduct either the minimum or maximum set out in regulations and avoid inconsistencies that may arise if discretion was to be exercised for each claimant’s deduction.</p> more like this

The Department has long-standing guidance in place which allows staff to signpost customers in writing to a food bank where they have asked for details, and if all sources of statutory support have been exhausted. Jobcentre Plus staff are not required to keep records of the number of benefit claimants signposted to food banks in their local area, and we have no current plans to develop official national statistics on food bank use.</p> more like this
