unstar this property answer text <p>An Impact Assessment of the benefit freeze was published in 2015. Evidence shows that work is the best route out of poverty. Children in workless households are five times more likely to be in poverty than those in households where all adults were working. The Welfare Reforms such as the benefit freeze were designed to incentivise parents to choose to move into and progress in work.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The improved work incentives in Universal Credit result not just from work allowances, but also from the lower taper rates, the fact that a claimant does not need to claim in three places, and that data on earnings is received every month, meaning that a claimant’s Universal Credit adjusts automatically to their earnings. We expect to provide an updated assessment of the labour supply effects of Universal Credit as part of the full business case later in 2018.</p> more like this

The four ‘Life Chances’ measures introduced through the Welfare Reform and Work Act 2016, which replaced the income based targets set out in the Child Poverty Act 2010, are designed to drive action and measure progress in the areas that we know can make the biggest difference - parental worklessness and children’s educational achievement.</p><p>The measures are based on official statistics produced by the Office for National Statistics on the proportion of children in workless households and the proportion of children in long-term workless households; and on Department for Education statistics on the educational attainment at Key Stage 4 of all pupils, and of disadvantaged pupils.</p><p>Although these statistics do not <ins class="ministerial">all<ins class="ministerial"> </ins></ins>provide data for individual constituencies, local authority-level data is available for the measure of all children in workless households and for both the educational attainment measures.</p><p>In 2016, 21.4 per cent of children were in workless households in Wolverhampton local authority.

These are being used at PIP and ESA hearings and are now providing direct feedback to decision makers and the assessment providers. Where appeals progress to the Upper Tribunal and the courts, the decisions and judgments handed down are used, where appropriate, to review existing decision making guidance, including that relating to PIP assessments.</p> more like this
