Housing Systems: Combating poverty and sustaining tenancies.
Mixed age couples - new rules

Learning at your fingertips.......

These courses are designed to help you get grips with the complexities of the new rules on Pension Credit and Housing Benefit for mixed age couples from 15th May 2019.

Many mixed age couples will have options - take the wrong one and they could be £140.00 a week worse off!

The courses will help learners understand the new rules and help them ensure they give accurate advice.

We have devised the following two courses:

Mixed Age Couples: getting to grips with the new rules - the Essentials

Mixed Age Couples: getting to grips with the new rules - Advanced

The Essentials course takes about 45 mins to complete and is aimed at those learners who need to have an awareness of the new rules, the implications and when to sign post a mixed age couple for help.

The Advanced course takes about 1 1/2 - 2 hours to complete and is aimed at benefit advisers and learners who need a more in-depth knowledge of the new rules to ensure they are giving accurate advice to their clients.

The majority of the training courses we deliver are face-to-face  - where each course is tailored to the needs of the group.

But we also occasionally recognise that there are times when it is useful to have courses available on the internet, where learners can access online training solutions that will quickly bring them up to speed on a key benefit issue - at a time that suits their schedule - to ensure they are providing the best service they can.
