star this property answer text <p>Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) provides a measure of earnings replacement for employees unable to work because of short-term sickness if they satisfy the qualifying conditions, which are not related to specific medical conditions.</p><p>Those who are not entitled to SSP or are still unwell at the end of the maximum payment period (28 weeks) may, provided they satisfy the conditions of entitlement, be entitled to Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).</p><p>As two people with the same condition can be affected in different ways, there is no condition-based entitlement to ESA. The Work Capability Assessment recognises that conditions can vary in their severity and therefore people with the same condition could be placed in the Work Related Activity Group, the Support Group or found fit for work.</p> more like this

Whilst the Department has a role in determining who is eligible for the Motability scheme, it is claimants’ own choice whether or not to join. Therefore the Department does not have a target for the number of people using the scheme.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is responsible for the civilian disability benefits that passport to Motability, Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Disability Living Allowance (DLA). However, there are more people with a Motability vehicle now than there were when PIP was first introduced; the last major change to such benefits.</p> more like this
