star this property answer text <p /> <p>The Department for Work and Pensions has not undertaken a formal assessment of changes in employment retention levels since changes to the percentage threshold scheme for statutory sick pay were introduced on 6 April 2014. The Impact Assessment supporting this change reflects that the removal of the scheme will not precipitate illegal discrimination by employers against employees with poor sickness records. If employees should suffer such discrimination then there are legal protections in place.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p>Personal Independence Payment is designed to assess people as individuals and ensure that decisions on entitlement, award lengths and timing of reviews are appropriate and evidence-based. We have been clear that longer term awards will be made in cases where the claimant's needs are expected to remain relatively stable or change slowly. On-going awards will be made in some cases where significant change in the claimant's needs is very unlikely.</p><p> </p><p>All awards, regardless of duration, will be reviewed periodically to ensure that the individual continues to receive the correct amount of benefit. Where we have sufficient evidence to do so, we will conduct a paper based assessment without the need for the claimant to attend a face to face assessment.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p>It is too early to form a reliable estimate from live running of the number of DLA recipients who are Motability users who will not qualify for the enhanced rate of the PIP mobility component.</p><p> </p><p>DWP will continue to pay DLA for four weeks after the decision not to pay PIP enhanced mobility component is made. The Motability charity has confirmed that claimants can keep their car for up to three weeks after DLA payments end. This means that claimants will retain their car for up to nearly two months even though they are not entitled to PIP enhanced mobility component.<strong> <br> <br> </strong></p><p>In addition the Department has worked closely with Motability to ensure that those claimants who no longer meet the criteria for the mobility scheme are supported through the transitional period. For most of these claimants who entered into their first lease agreement with Motability before January 2013, Motability will provide transitional support of £2,000. This will enable many claimants to continue to meet their mobility needs by purchasing a used car. For claimants who entered into their first lease agreement with the scheme after January 2013 and up to December 2013, Motability will supply transitional support of £1,000 to assist with mobility costs.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>This Government is determined to end youth unemployment, and support all young people into work. In order to prevent young people slipping straight into a life on benefits, from April 2017 we will remove automatic entitlement to housing support for new claims in Universal Credit from 18-21 year olds who are out of work. This measure ensures young people in the benefits system face the same choices as young people who work and who may not be able to afford to leave home.</p><p> </p><p>However, we will ensure that vulnerable young people who are in need of support for their housing needs continue to receive it.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>People living in specified accommodation claiming Universal Credit do not receive the housing element, and instead receive support for their housing costs though Housing Benefit. The Government has no plans to change 18-21 year olds entitlement to Housing Benefit, so claimants in specified accommodation will continue to be supported with their housing costs and will be unaffected by this policy.</p>
