Has anyone had any success in withdrawing a UC claim?
Requested a withdrawal today quoting Reg 31. This client was not on legacy benefits - the reason for the withdrawal is the client became aware of some additional holiday pay from her employer arriving within a few days. She wants to try to cancel and reapply after pay date. Claim was made today. I have assumed that a withdrawal is the same as an ineligible claimant and it’s as if the first claim was never made.
Have a look at this:
Judge Jacobs says that a withdrawal does not have retrospective effect - see paragraph 11 here.
However, this shouldn’t affect your situation, as you should be fine even without it being retrospective.
