DWP "stop" legacy benefits when a new UC claim is submitted but POI not completed.
Have asked for mandatory consideration (MR) of child tax credit (CTC) termination which was initiated by DWP when a new claim for UC was commenced but not completed. NO COMMITIMENT and NO POOF OF IDENTITY were made.
Decided worse off on UC and hassle much too much. UC being rolled out in my area so no prospect of making new CTC claim.
CTC award confirmed as ended by DWP and TC office.
Universal credit ( transitional Provisions ) Regulations 2014 section 8 (1)to (d) are not met in this claim and we believe that existing benefits (TC) should not have been terminated.
Benefit advisor or other , what is your view please ? This situation has not been tested at Tribunal we believe ?
Long wait for MR any other option ? will go the tribunal if MR fails.
