star this property answer text <p>We recognise that attending a face-to-face assessment can be a stressful experience for some people, including for people who have a mental health condition. That is why we do not require people to attend face-to-face consultations where there is enough existing evidence to determine benefit entitlement.</p><p>Furthermore, where a face-to-face consultation is required, we encourage claimants to bring another person with them where they would find this helpful, for example, reassure them or to help them during the consultation. The person chosen is at the discretion of the claimant and might be, but is not limited to, a parent, family member, friend, carer, or advocate.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government's priority remains securing a deal to leave the EU. We have more people in work than ever before, with wages continuing to grow. However, as a responsible government we have plans in place for a range of scenarios. The welfare system provides a strong safety net. A system of hardship payments, benefit advances and budgeting loans will be available for eligible claimants who need them.</p><p> </p><p>For new claimants applying for Universal Credit (UC), new claim advances provide access to a payment for those in financial need, which can be accessed on the same day, until their first UC payment is due. We have increased work allowance rates by £1,000 in April 2019 and they will be uprated in line with inflation in the future. This measure provides additional support in a package announced in Autumn Budget 2018, worth £1.7 billion by 2023/24, to some of the most vulnerable low paid working households.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department is currently investigating a discrepancy with data on registrations to Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for the quarter ending April 2019. As a result, registrations data are only available up to 31<sup>st</sup> January 2019. We are therefore unable to release data on the number of claimants who have registered for PIP since 31<sup>st</sup> January 2019 and therefore the number of those claimants who have not yet had a decision.</p><p>Registrations data are expected to be available in future releases when the issue has been resolved.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this
