answer text <p>As detailed in Office for Budget Responsibility’s Economic and Fiscal Outlook 2018 (OBR EFO) Universal Credit is now forecast to be more generous to claimants than the legacy benefit system. This is a combination of forecasting changes which are detailed on page 150 of the OBR’s EFO as well as the impacts of the Budget 2018 which can be seen in table 4.28 and on pages 150 to 153. Therefore it is not the cost of administering the system which has caused these changes.</p><p> </p><p>In our published Universal Credit Full Business Case Summary we set out that, Universal Credit will be less costly to deliver than the legacy benefit system, and that Universal Credit operational costs break even against legacy operational savings from 2019/20 and are reduced in steady state by over £0.3 billion (circa 30%) on a like for like basis.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We want to reform the Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) system so that it supports more flexible working, which can help people remain or return to work if they are unwell. This includes those with a mental health condition. Consultation responses broadly supported reforming SSP to support fully flexible phased returns to work – as did the Matthew Taylor and Stevenson/Farmer reviews.</p><p> </p><p>We are taking forward further policy development on better enabling phased return and how a phased return could be paid, and will bring forward a consultation on these changes before introducing this reform.</p> more like this
