Version 23.10 – August 2019
This update extends QBC to October 2019.
This version covers the introduction of the UC SDP transitional amount (this provides ongoing compensation for some UC claimants who had a SDP in IS, JSA(IB) and ESA(IR) and lost out on natural migration to UC prior to the introduction of the UC SDP gateway in January 2019.
(Affected claimants should also receive backdated compensation.) Enter any SDP transitional amount on the UC screen.
This version also covers the UC transitional element for some claimants who have been transferred to UC in the managed migration pilot (initially only in the Harrogate JCP area.)
If applicable, indicate the claimant has been managed migrated on the UC screen.
