MIF lifted from the beginning of the relevant period
Would appreciate help with the below, please:
UC claimant awarded LCWRA is exempt from MIF (s.19 of WRA).
I would assume the MIF should be lifted from the beginning of the relevant period, not when the LCWRA element is actually in payment 3 months later?
Thank you in advance!
Hi Emilia, your assumption is correct. The award of LCWRA transfers the claimant to the ” No Work Requirements ” UC conditionality group. In that group there cannot be a MIF. Payment of the LCWRA element is not relevant for that determination.
Thank you so much for that!
