answer text <p>Individual-level benefit records available for analysis do not include information on claimants affected by domestic violence due to data sensitivity. Separately, the Department asks Local authorities to supply details of their use of Discretionary Housing Payments on a voluntary basis. This does not include the specific circumstances of the claimant (including whether they have been subject to domestic abuse). and there are no plans to ask for any additional information.</p> more like this

answer text <p>No changes have been made to the burden of proof required to demonstrate eligibility for Universal Credit. In 2015, amendments to Universal Credit regulations brought the eligibility criteria to access Universal Credit more closely into line with EU regulations. The Department publishes Advice for Decision Makers on gov.uk, which is updated periodically.</p> more like this
