Advanced Benefits Course - Benefit Sanctions, Appeals & Overpayments
Are you a landlord? Do you work for a Housing Association, ALMO or Local Authority? Are you a Letting agent? Do you work with people with low income and disabilities? Do you require knowledge of the current Welfare Benefits available? Do you work with vulnerable people?
Then look no further, this course is for you. It not only provides you with an insight into the Benefits world but also provides you with an explanation of when and how people who claim benefits can end up with benefit sanctions or overpayments and what you can do to support tenants with appeals if they have vulnerability issues or simply require support to negotiate this new minefield.
This course refers to current Regulations and Legislations and looks at the impact of future changes to the benefits system, which are resulting in a dramatic rise in the numbers of sanctions issued and the resulting increase in rent arrears that this will cause. This course will give you advice and top tips from our benefit experts on how to prevent, minimise and reverse Local Authority overpayments and DWP sanction decisions.
