April 2015 – Verification Checks for JSA Claimants
All income based jobseekers allowance (JSA) claimants are to be required to complete an annual verification check.
An annual verification letter will be sent to all claimants automatically, after they have been in receipt of income based JSA for more than 12 months. The claimant will have 28 days to complete their response, sign a strengthened declaration updating or confirming their circumstances and return the letter to DWP. If the annual verification letter is not returned after 28 days, a reminder letter will be sent to the claimant allowing them a further 14 days to return their letter before the case is considered for suspension.
