Work and Pensions Committee
The deadline for written submissions was Friday 10 November 2017. If you would like to send a submission please contact Committee staff.
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.
If you have had an assessment, or are waiting for an assessment, for PIP or ESA, we'd like to hear from you.
Evidence given by Paul Gray CB, Leader of the Independent Reviews of PIP and Chair of the Social Security Advisory Committee, Department for Work and Pensions, and Dr Paul Litchfield OBE, Leader of the 2013 and 2014 Independent Reviews of the ESA Work Capability Assessment; Sarah Newton MP, Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work, Janice Smethurst, Director for Contracted Health and Employment Services Directorate and James Wolfe, Director for Disability Employment and Support, Department for Work and Pensions (at 10.00am).
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
