In partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions, IRRV Scotland is running this event in Grangemouth on 3rd May 2019.

This workshop will be run for the IRRV by John Giblin. It is for Benefit Managers, Team Leaders and other relevant staff responsible for managing DWP’s fraud, error and debt initiatives in general; and in particular minimising Housing Benefit error and maximising HB overpayment recovery.

DWP will present on its current thinking and the current status of all things fraud, error and debt. This will include:

  • Current levels of Housing Benefit fraud and error

  • Latest initiatives, including the self-employed Review

  • Verification of Earnings and Pensions (VEP)

  • Real Time Information on HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) employment and pension data, for Housing Benefit overpayment Recovery.

DWP will also provide an update on :

  • Automation (ATLAS, UC Data Hub and the potential around VEP)

  • Universal Credit

Additionally, John Giblin will provide an independent view of the current levels of fraud, error and debt within an historical context and will evaluate DWP’s recent tactics. He will also demonstrate the challenges and value of implementing a comprehensive Right Benefit Strategy.

Due  to their huge popularity in previous workshops, John will again facilitate syndicate and group sessions to ensure that you get the optimal exchange of knowledge and ideas, from each other. These will set around the challenges and opportunities presented by the latest developments of VEP, HMRC Trace and the self-employed review as well as HB overpayment recovery more generally.

The day will begin with coffee and registration from 9.30am and will conclude around 3.30pm to 3.45pm.

The seminar represents excellent value for money, with seminar fees starting at only £145 + VAT. Every fourth place from the same organisation booked for this workshop (and made in the same booking) is entirely free of charge.
