The third in a series of sessions taking a deeper look at how Universal Credit will affect tenants, homeowners and landlords.

This practical session will guide participants through the process of making a claim for Universal Credit, from setting up an account, through the verification process to payment processes. The session will include screengrabs of the online system and will help participants to identify areas where their own client groups may need additional support.

The focus of this course will be on how housing costs are calculated and paid and will provide detailed information on

  • Eligible costs
  • The liability and occupation conditions
  • The size criteria for private and social sector tenants
  • Assistance available to owner-occupiers, including the conversion of assistance into a loan payment
  • Housing costs contributions from non-dependants in a claimant’s household
  • Sanctions & appeals

Although, this session will have a housing focus, the course will also look at the other elements payable under Universal Credit. Finally, the session will identify sources of assistance to help claimants who are struggling financially.
