Work and Pensions Committee

PIP and ESA Assessments inquiry

Inquiry status: open

The deadline for written submissions was Friday 10 November 2017. If you would like to send a submission please contact Committee staff.

Scope of the inquiry

The Committee invites evidence on the effectiveness of assessment processes used to determine eligibility for Personal Independence Payments (PIP) and Employment and Support Allowance (ESA). The Committee is interested in receiving recommendations for change both on the assessment process for each benefit individually, and on common lessons that can be learned from the two processes.

Web Forum

If you have had an assessment, or are waiting for an assessment, for PIP or ESA, we'd like to hear from you.
