Reply To: Modifying the AIF

Julian Hobson

According to the recent additions to the external questions log on the DWP website the situation is complicated.

the GC only and GC and SC cases notified on the august extract will be straight forward as no AIF

However the SC only cases notified will not have AIF breakdowns, the answer from DWP is that we will have to ask PS for the breakdown and that the SLA says a 48 hour turnaround, and that we should liaise with PS about how we are going to handle this !!!!

The good news is that the ETDs received before October 6th should have the AIF breakdown although as I said in my earlier post the examples in the handbook don’t confirm this.

I can feel a debacle coming on !
