star this property answer text <p>Twice a year, the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) produce detailed forecasts for the coming five years, assessing the likely impact of policy decisions and expected developments in the economy. A key component of this is the welfare annually managed expenditure (AME) forecast, which estimates future government expenditure on social security benefits and tax credits.</p><p>The current welfare freeze, which was announced in 2015, runs from 2016/17 to 2019/20. As such, the cost of resuming the uprating of frozen benefits from 2020/21 is already accounted for in the welfare forecast – which combines DWP, HMRC and BEIS AME expenditure. The OBR does not routinely disaggregate the cost of uprating within the forecast.</p> more like this
