star this property answer text <p>No assessment specifically has been made on the impact of benefit sanctions and the benefit freeze on claimants’ with mental health. We are committed to supporting those who cannot work, and those with additional needs. Decision Makers take all the claimant’s individual circumstances, including any health conditions or disabilities, and any evidence of good cause into account before making a decision. Benefits for the additional costs of disability, and for carers, are exempt from the benefit freeze and will continue to be up-rated in the usual way</p><p> </p><p>The evaluation of the original benefit cap found that capped households were 41% more likely to go into work than similar uncapped households. Encouraging more households to move into work would also help increase the household’s income and improve their well-being. Research shows for people without work, re-employment leads to improvement in health and well-being whereas further unemployment leads to deterioration. We therefore expect the reduction of the benefit cap to have a positive impact on households moving into work.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

This involved mailing more than 5 million letters. Advertising campaigns have been used more widely to encourage people to find out more about their State Pension and the earliest they can claim it, by using online tools such as ‘Check your State Pension’, the State Pension age calculator and information at gov.uk. These campaigns supported the nationwide launch of the new State Pension and were not solely targeted to women or a specific age group.</p> more like this
