FOI 'We, DWP, can refuse to let you use your Post Office Card Account (POCA) for payments of Universal Credit'

to make their UC payments[3]?

If an existing UC claimant is getting payments via their POCA and they also have a bank account, what legal powers do the DWP have to refuse to make payments via their POCA [4] and what powers do you have that requires any POCA to disclose to the DWP their bank account details [5] for the purpose of making their UC payments into and not their POCA?

Please disclose information information you hold for [1], [2], [3], [4] and [5]
