Reply To: CTR schemes with Fixed Periods


We have gone part way but I think a fixed period award would be problematic and discounted it , not because it cannot be done (which I think it can for W/A) but because of the potential problems associated with introducing such a scheme.

What we have done is introduce a discretion to ‘ignore’ changes in income for U.C. recipients for a period of up to six months which does reduce the number of changes we process. I am not aware of any instances where we have failed to make a change if requested by an applicant and, tbh, would be loathe to take such a case to the V.T.
