We will continue to engage with stakeholders and disabled people to deliver further improvements where needed and are committed to ensuring that everyone has the same opportunity to lead a full, active and independent life.</p><p> </p><p>The design of PIP has always been on the basis of 16 being the appropriate lower age-limit for claims. That has been the case since the first consultation on replacing Disability Living Allowance with PIP took place in 2010 and through subsequent consultations on the design of the assessment criteria and the other detailed processes to support claims, including the needs and requirements of young people reaching age 16 and younger adults more widely.</p> more like this

This approach recognises the potential power of transparency, both for employees within organisations and for external audiences. The Government continues to work with employers (including the Civil Service and the NHS) and expert partners to encourage sign up, but there is no requirement for them to notify the Government of how they are using it.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Long-standing policy has always been eligibility for income-related (means-tested) social security benefits depends on a person’s immigration status in the UK. Claimants must be exercising a legal right to reside and be habitually resident before they are eligible to claim income related benefit. This is assessed through the Habitual Residence Test (HRT), which has been in place since 1994.</p><p /><p>Information on the number of JSA claims which failed the Habitual Residence Test are available in <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/639597/analysis-of-migrants-access-to-income-related-benefits.pdf" target="_blank">“Analysis of Migrants’ Access to Income-Related Benefits”</a></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Information on Universal Credit contracts which have a recorded failed Habitual Residence Test are as follows: 2016/2017 – 800 failed claims, 2017/2018 – 7,600 failed claims and 2018/2019 – 30,700 failed claims, this reflects the increasing caseload on UC since it’s rollout. UC data supplied is derived from unpublished management information, which was collected for internal Departmental use only and has not been quality assured to National Statistics or Official Statistics publication standard. The data should therefore be treated with caution. UC cases may be closed for other reasons (for example, “ineligible”) but may have failed the HRT – these are not captured in the estimates above.</p><p> </p><p>Information for JSA claims from 2017/18 is not readily available and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost. No data was recorded on UC data for HRTs prior to 2016/17</p>
