The Up-rating Regulations 2019 contain provisions adjusting aspects of the benefit system in light of the Order, and include an increase in the weekly earnings limit in Carer’s Allowance from £120 to £123.

We are committed to ensuring that all our processes work effectively across the spectrum of disabilities and health conditions, including mental health conditions, cognitive impairments, physical disabilities and conditions that fluctuate such as epilepsy. We recognise that for some individuals with epilepsy, attending a consultation at an unfamiliar location could create an element of anxiety. We have made it very clear that when attending a face-to-face consultation, claimants can bring someone with them in order to support them or help them manage any anxiety they may feel. In some cases we will also carry out consultations in claimants’ homes.</p> more like this
