Reply To: full case reviews and temp accommodation

This from A5/2020 – claimant has to supply their current details, not the LA using other sources to confirm entitltment.

7. An FCR requires the claimant to supply all their current details and evidence requirements
to the LA again in order for HB to be re-determined.
8. We are not prescribing how LAs undertake these reviews. The key elements are the:
 claimant is required to supply all their details again
 LA to validate this information with appropriate evidence in accordance with their
review processes, in order to identify any changes of circumstances and recalculate a
claimant’s HB award accordingly
