Here’s The Catch

Like most systems designed to help disabled people, Access To Work can be tricky to negotiate.

Never fear though because we are here to help. We’ve put together a helpful sheet with some pro tips to help you get the most out of Access to Work.

You can find it here.

This info sheet comes from an experienced A2W users with years of experience. We’ve put it together so you can avoid the pitfalls that we’ve gone through!

Here is flavour of what you will find in the resource.

Claiming

There is no time constraint on when you put claims in. So for example, if you are claiming for taxis to and from work, these can soon mount up. But there is nothing stopping you from putting in a claim at the end of each week. Be aware of the time involved in claiming.

Doing The Paper Work

Make sure you sign everything, otherwise, it is coming straight back to you.

When You Reapply

A2W will not necessarily inform you when you need to renew your claim so make sure you are aware of the date by which you need to reapply.

If You Change Jobs

If you change jobs, you will need to reapply for support and resupply all previous evidence.
