    Can anyone advise if there is any stipulation in the vf guidence manuals, that benefit claims must be verified and calculated by two different people, or is it just advised as good practice. I would be grateful if someone could point me in right direction.


    I’m not aware of any kind of stipulation in the SAFE Manual along the lines you describe, either in respect to verification or assessment. There is, however, some slight guidance in respect to quality checking to ensure that standards are being met/maintained, in relation to both LA staff and any third party ‘VFers’.


    Early VF rules suggested a separation of verifier and assessor. Later rules dropped that requirement, although some LAs continued to operate this approach as it allowed assessors to quickly process ready claims.

    As VF is scrapped now, the scheme has become good practice for evidence requirements.
