For instance, the first question asks whether the applicant has completed a benefits calculation to ensure they are receiving all the benefits they are entitled to. If you put 'No' as the answer, you will get a pop up box which explains why a benefits calculation is necessary and that you will not be able to continue to fill in the form until he or she has done one.
