answer text <p>Access to Work awards are capped at £57,200.00 this year. If a customer’s application for support is likely to be affected by this upper limit, their application is not rejected. An Access to Work adviser will work with the customer and their employer in order to ensure that appropriate support can still be offered. For example, Access to Work may offer such customers a managed personal budget to enable more flexibility of support.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

Figures have been rounded to the nearest 10.</p><p> </p><p>Appeals data taken from the DWP PIP computer system’s management information. Therefore this appeal data may differ from that held by Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service for various reasons such as delays in data recording and other methodological differences in collating and preparing statistics.</p><p> </p><p>The Parliamentary Constituency geography relates to the origin of the claim (i.e. derived from claimant’s postcode) rather than the location of where the tribunal was.</p><p> </p><p>Decisions overturned at appeal may include a number of appeals that have been lapsed (which is where DWP changed the decision after an appeal was lodged but before it was heard at Tribunal).</p><p> </p><p>Since PIP was introduced, 3.5m decisions have been made nationally up to June 2018. Of these, 9% have been appealed and 4% have been overturned.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) appeals -</p><p> </p><p>Information on appeal outcome by claim start date and Parliamentary Constituency is</p><p>available on Stat-Xplore under “ESA Work Capability Assessments”.</p><p><a href="https://stat-xplore.dwp.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://stat-xplore.dwp.gov.uk/</a></p><p>Guidance on how to use Stat-Xplore can be found here:</p><p>https://sw.stat-xplore.dwp.gov.uk/webapi/online-help/index.html</p><p /><p>Between April 2014 and March 2018, 3.5m ESA (post WCA) decisions have been made nationally, of these 8% have been appealed and 4% have been overturned.</p>
