Reply To: In claim activity for Pensioner

Laura Moore

I understood the last ‘Dear Benefit Manager’ letter sent on 12th June promised that a review of the VF framework would be carried out over the summer, with decisions announced in September. They said that it would be ‘..a new in-claim regime enshrined within the Verification Framework’ and this would offset the reduction in work from abolishing benefit periods for pensioners, and for working age people (from April 2004). So it sounds like more information will arrive in a few months.
