Reforming Disability Living Allowance 2010 to 2014/15
Posted on: June 22 2010, 03:26 pm

I hope you will not mind me posting this information only many organisations members here will have a caseload that may be affected.

The budget today and subsequent "Red Book" and supplementary documents give us a "hint" at what is planned in the up and coming welfare reform package as far as Disability Living Allowance is concerned.

A new test similar to the Work Capability Assessment, effecting all claimants existing & new, an attempt to cut 1billion from the DLA budget by 2014/5.

This of course by no means the only welfare issue in the budget that will impact our community negatively.

Best to you all,

John.
