New Access to Work process for Internships and traineeships

DWP has revised the application and claims process for the use of Access to Work within Supported Internships and Traineeships. The changes are mainly due to DWP's security requirements and they now need a customer signature on the application and claims forms. Access to Work are also introducing a declaration letter that the customer must sign and return before claims are approved.

We are still awaiting a final copy of the guidance but the revised application form, process flowcharts and a Q&A log are available on our knowledge pages at We will post the DWP guidance when it is finalised.
