The Disability Benefits Consortium has submitted a series of recommendations for this year’s Budget.

In our representation to the Treasury, the DBC called on the Government to:

  • Not only end the benefit freeze but also uprate payments above inflation so as to restore the amounts lost during the freeze.
  • Restore the disability elements lost in the transition from “legacy benefits” to Universal Credit.
  • Review the current PIP assessment criteria and process, in consultation with disabled people.
  • End the 5-week wait for Universal Credit.
  • Remove sanctions on disability benefits.

A copy of our submission can be found in the DBC reports section.
