Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please could you clarify the conditions of entitlement to a Short Term Benefit Advance of Universal Credit, with respect to the requirement that a claimant must be likely to be entitled to UC. I have been unable to source the guidance or regulations stating this. Please (a) confirm whether a claimant currently having their JSA or ESA sanctioned, and/or who has failed to meet conditionality requirements on such legancy benefits, will not qualify for a TBA of UC on migration; and (b) whether this exclusion of a STBA for UC extends to the whole of the UC (including housing cost element) and (c) if so, under which regulations.
Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Glenys Harriman
