This is a past event.

From 10:00 to 16:00 on 7th June 2018

94 Duke St, Glasgow G4 0UW

Cost: Various - see description

Level: Standard
The roll out of universal credit (UC) full service is due to be completed by the end of 2018. Many more people claim UC in the full service, including families, those with health conditions and those in work. People need to make and maintain their claims online.

This course draws on experience from areas where UC full service is operating. You will learn who is affected, how best to support them, particularly those who are vulnerable or in difficult circumstances. You will have a chance to refresh your knowledge of UC entitlement and calculations.

The course covers:

Who is entitled to UC in the full service – a review of the rules
Making and maintaining an online claim
An introduction to conditionality and sanctions
Claiming UC and other benefits at the same time
What triggers a transfer from existing benefits to UC in the full service
Practicing calculations
Effect of UC full service on specific claimant groups
This course will be particularly useful for advisers in areas where UC full service has been introduced or is planned in the coming months. If you are not a benefits adviser choose instead from Universal credit – supporting clients and Universal credit – effective claims.
