Liaison: External Links - DWP - IS/JSA/MIG - DWP checks

The DWP carries out checks on claims for benefits, including those for IS/JSA/MIG, to satisfy itself that the conditions of entitlement are met. If a customer has been passported from IS/JSA/MIG, JC+ will have checked the income the family has declared by examining wage slips, the Child Benefit award notice and order book, and other evidence. If a customer lives with another adult as husband and wife, the other person’s income must be taken into account and will affect the IS/JSA/MIG entitlement.
