    'Practice' Universal Credit claim - Petition.

    We had a thread last week about 'Practicing' a Universal Credit claim.

    There is now a newly started petition to try and get the DWP to implement an official 'Practice' version of the claim process, so that people can try it without actually making a claim.

    https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/228834

    I encourage everyone on ESA to sign it.
    (Especially if you have IR ESA or an IR top UP, (ie. any premium).

    As the plans for migration currently stand then you will have to make a UC claim come Managed Migration time, starting July 2019.
    Being able to have a practice before doing the actual claim will be a great help.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Go ahead, spread the word about.

    Personally I don't do Faceache much, but I'm sure someone will put it up there.

    Brilliant piece and great idea Nuke.

    I did actually have a go (using your advice) and it didn't get very far anyway. Only gave 'practise' option of completing the illness/disability section & that isn't so detailed, on that version anyway!

    But, aye, will be signing.

    I tried that one, spencer did as well, but it seems to be well out of date, hence why someone started the petition for an 'offical' one.
