Dear Department for Work and Pension
FOI request Re. Universal Credit (UC) effect of sudden stop on tax credits vulnerable individuals
What are DWP doing to protect vulnerable and disabled individuals from the sudden withdrawal of tax credit (TC) or child tax credit (CTC) after a request by DWP to terminate legacy benefits . This is in situations where the individual has "expressed an interest" in UC or submitted a claim for UC which may or may not progress.
What are DWP doing to protect the above named groups while they wait eight or more weeks for Mandatory Reconsideration of the TC stop and are in financial hardship.
