Government guidelines for PIP

Actively Seeking Work - Discretion
All JSA claimants are required, by legislation, to agree a Claimant Commitment which includes details of the actions they will take on an on-going basis to fulfil the Actively Seeking Work requirement. However, if a claimant does not complete the exact actions detailed in their Claimant Commitment, Work Coaches have the discretion and ability to evaluate whether they have fulfilled their obligation to actively seek work in other ways.

When reviewing what the claimant has done Work Coaches should not only review what the claimant said they would do on their Claimant Commitment, but, importantly, also consider what the claimant actually did and whether that was reasonable taking into account the prevailing circumstances during the period in question. Where a claimant may not have completed everything in their Claimant Commitment in a particular period, it does not automatically follow that they were not actively seeking work if what they actually did was reasonable during the period being considered (for example they may not have completed all their agreed activities for the period as they were preparing for and attending an interview).

Impact of Sanctions

Advice on benefits, care and debt

The idea that tightening access to disability benefits is the way to get disabled people into work is a reinvention of the ten year old wheel that started the car crash we see around us today: An increase in suicides, and mental health problems, the explosion in the use of food banks.

Can the Conservatives really go further down this murderous road? As long as the British public still believes this has anything to do with halving the disability employment gap, they probably can.
