This pilot will initially involve no more than 10,000 claimants. Testing the system and our processes will allow us to make sure we can provide the best possible service to those who are moved to Universal Credit. The movement of these legacy benefit and tax credit claimants will be completed, as planned, by the end of 2023.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are committed to assessing people with health conditions and disabilities fairly and accurately, and helping people to access the right support. We made a clear commitment in <em>Improving Lives</em>: <em>The Future of Work, Health and Disability</em> to reform the Work Capability Assessment (WCA) and recognise the importance of getting this right. We are therefore testing new approaches to build the evidence base for what works, and working with external stakeholders to inform future changes to the WCA.</p><p> </p><p>Over the last year we have introduced new guidance into Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and Universal Credit (UC), as well as updated guidance for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) to improve the service we provide for those with the most severe/lifelong conditions. For ESA/UC since September 2017 we have switched off routine reassessments for those who meet the Severe Conditions criteria, and since August 2018, those receiving the highest level of support in PIP, whose needs are unlikely to change or may get worse, will now receive an ongoing award with a light touch review at the ten year point.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department recognises the importance of safeguarding the welfare of claimants who have incurred debt, and Universal Credit already has procedures and regulations in place to protect claimants from excessive deductions.</p><p>A claimant’s circumstances are always taken into account when applying debt repayment thresholds to avoid undue hardship. If a claimant is having difficulty repaying a benefit overpayment, they can request a reconsideration of the amount that is being taken. Any reduction will be based on the individual circumstances of the claimant rather than the amount of the overpayment, which helps to ensure that a sustainable repayment plan based on affordability is put in place.</p><p>The maximum rate of deductions will not normally exceed an amount equal to 40 per cent of the Universal Credit standard allowance, and from October 2019 this maximum rate will be reduced to 30 per cent. However, where it is in the best interest of vulnerable claimants, to protect them from being made homeless or having their fuel disconnected, deductions in excess of the maximum rate may be applied. This is only for ‘last resort’ third party deductions for arrears of service charges, rent, gas and electricity. When we take deductions for gas and electricity arrears, we will also take them for the on-going monthly cost of these utilities.</p><p>The Department has also implemented a range of measures to further support claimants such as providing a two-week ‘transitional housing payment’ for those who had been receiving Housing Benefit before transitioning onto Universal Credit, and interest free advances, worth up to 100 per cent of their indicative Universal Credit award which can be paid back over 12 months.</p>
