WAD and UC Staffing changes following the Budget

19 Dec 2017

The closure of new claims to UC Live Service and the slow down of the rollout of Full Service mean that there will be considerably more claims to Working Age Benefits, JSA, ESA and IS, over the early months of 2018 than originally planned by the DWP. The consequence is that more staff will now be required to deliver Working Age benefits than previously expected and less to deliver Universal Credit, at least in the short term.
