Disabled Universal Credit claimants take DWP to court for ‘irrational’ decision
Two households affected by disability are challenging the Department for Work and Pensions in court after being forced to move to Universal Credit and losing hundreds of pounds as a result.

The charity Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) is challenging the DWP on behalf of the two households in the High Court today and tomorrow. They will argue the policy is ‘irrational’ since the claimants’ circumstances have not changed.

DISABLED HOUSEHOLDS WORSE OFF ON UNIVERSAL CREDIT AIM FOR COURT OF APPEAL
March 1, 2019

http://www.cpag.org.uk/content/disabled-households-worse-universal-credit-aim-court-appeal

Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) is seeking leave to appeal direct to the Court of Appeal on behalf of two disabled households who were left worse off after they were forced to move to universal credit (UC) because their existing benefits were wrongly stopped by the DWP. The move follows a High Court decision today which rejected a claim of unlawful discrimination brought by the two households and refused permission to appeal.

The Government has consistently given assurances that no claimant will be worse off when they move to UC where there has been no change of circumstances.
