Universal credit - information regarding RTI earnings dispute specialist team

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

This is a freedom of information request regarding Universal Credit payments.

Under regulation 61;

‘(6) Where a person is engaged in an employment where they are paid on a regular monthly basis and more than one payment in relation to that employment is reported in the same assessment period, the Secretary of State may, for the purposes of maintaining a regular pattern, determine that one of those payments is to be treated as employed earnings in respect of a different assessment period.’

I am requesting the following information:

The total headcount of employees that work in the RTI earnings dispute team.

Yours faithfully,

Michael Burrows
