When completing the clients means assessment you can inform the LAA if the client is on a Passported Benefit. CCMS will check online with the DWP whether the client is receiving a passporting benefit.


The Passported Benefits are:

  • Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income Related Employment Support Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Guaranteed State Pension Credit
  • Universal Credit


If your client is in receipt of Universal Credit, the option for this is currently unavailable on CCMS, therefore please select Guaranteed State Pension Credit when performing the benefit check with the DWP. This will ensure the correct results are returned from the DWP.


Further guidance can be found on the Means Passporting Applications quick guide.
