star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>We have taken action to reduce the cost of appeals by reforming the DWP appeal process. Mandatory reconsideration, where we look again at individual decisions before it goes to a tribunal, alongside our wider reforms to streamline the system are designed to avoid the need for expensive appeals.</p><p> </p><p>We have seen a significant reduction in the volume of appeals. During the first quarter of this year appeals against ESA decisions decreased by almost 90 per cent, compared to the same time last year. We expect that this will be reflected in a lower total cost incurred by this Department in 2014/15.</p><p> </p><p>The operating costs incurred by the Department for appeals against ESA decisions prior to 2014/15 are as follows:</p><p><strong> </strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2011/12</p></td><td><p>2012/13</p></td><td><p>2013/14</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>ESA Appeals</p></td><td><p>£16,464,859</p></td><td><p>£19,651,619</p></td><td><p>£28,678,396</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>In addition to these costs the Department has paid the following amounts to HMCTS. These costs are for the number of appeals against ESA decisions that HMCTS have handled which are in excess of the volume for which they have been funded for in their baseline funding.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2011/12</p></td><td><p>2012/13</p></td><td><p>2013/14</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Total Costs payable to HMCTS</p></td><td><p>£26,157,701</p></td><td><p>£29,291,646</p></td><td><p>£41,179,738</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Note: Comparable data is not available prior to 2011/12.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

We are in the process of writing to these claimants and continue to make every effort to contact them. All claimants will be given at least 6 weeks from their loan offer date to consider their options and make a decision whether to take the offer of an SMI loan.</p> more like this
