Description: This Project delivers the reassessment, through the Work Capability Assessment, of all relevant Incapacity Benefits customers, all those claiming Income Support on grounds of incapacity, and working age claimants of Severe Disablement Allowance to Employment and Support Allowance. Reassessment commenced in October 2010. The Project objectives are that: 1) all IB customers gain from a new, simpler, more active benefit; 2) everyone who could benefit engages with back to work support through the Work Programme; 3) the right people are on the right benefit, and subject to the appropriate conditionality and help to return to work; and that 4) all disabled people and people with health conditions are treated equally over time, and receive fair levels of financial support; with 5) administration on the same systems for all people on incapacity benefits, cutting down on error and dual provision; and 6) a transfer to new systems as seamless as possible, with customers’ rate of payment protected as part of transition.
