    Can someone please clarify if DWP has changed their definition of what is a new claim?

    MIS guidance for 2004-2005 states that a new claim is measured where there is a break in entitlement of 4 weeks or more, however MIS guidance for 2005-2006 talks only of a ‘break in entitlement’.

    Can anyone advise which is correct?

    My MIS guides for 2004/5 and 2005/6 make no mention of not counting a new claim if there is a short break in entitlement, so we have always counted new claims no matter how short the break in entitlement is.
