Personal Independence Payment implementation December 2013

Inquiry status: Oral and written evidence published, inquiry concluded.

The meeting covers progress with the introduction of Personal Independence Payment for new claimants and the timetable for “natural reassessment” of existing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) claimants, which began in some areas of the country in October 2013.

Wider issues relating to contractors’ capacity to deliver all Medical Services Contract assessments and reassessments to the proposed timescales, including Work Capability Assessments, are discussed.
