Reply To: Universal Credit and Capital

I am not sure if that is correct but I have always been advised that we work in line with The DWP decision.

All you can do is advise The DWP of the capital which you have done; if The DWP are going to ignore that and UC remains in pay, I see no reason why HB cannot be awarded.

I would however ensure you save all evidence to your DIP system in case The DWP change their decision on the future.
