  • DWP - Erroneous claims for Income Support 

    Created: 30/06/2023
    News/Events Category: General News

    New claims to Income Support (IS) on the grounds of incapacity were closed from 31 January 2011. However, some claimants continued to erroneously claim IS after this date, when they should have made new claims to Employment and Support Allowance (ESA(IR)).  Depending on differences in IS paid and potential entitlement to ESA(IR), some claimants may have therefore been underpaid, so DWP is undertaking an exercise to address this. 
    Details of how potential claimants can apply, eligibility criteria and evidence needed to make a claim can be found on GOV.UK.
