Sick And Disabled People Are More Than Twice As Likely To Die As To Get A Job On Work Programme

October 26, 2015

With thanks to ilegal forum.

Shocking ‘back to work’ results for people claiming all kinds of sickness benefits in Great Britain over a 4 year period show that just 37,770 obtained a ‘job outcome’, whereas in just over a two year period over 81,000 people died whilst claiming sickness benefits between December 2011 and February 2014.

Compare these two tables:

So the total number of people on sickness or disability benefits with ‘job outcomes’ is just 37,770.

The figures include 7,090 claimants who voluntarily agree to attach themselves to the government’s work programme even though there is no requirement upon them to do so.  Other claimant groups extend to 6,980 Jobseeker Allowance claimants who were at some stage in their past on longer term ‘incapacity benefits’, – a group which will include a large number who have simply ended their sickness claim as their condition improves enabling them to seek work.  

The worst results are to be seen in the most vilified of all, those on longer term incapacity benefits who have been subjected to the newer employment & support allowance regime in the ‘work related activity group’.  It was this group which was once reported to be faking their illnesses by as much as 75% in order to stay on the sick after testing a handful of claimants in a pilot exercise in October 2010.  Yet, after 1.3 million people being tested it transpires the vast majority qualify for their benefits.  Shamefully the lowest ‘job outcome’ figures of them all (2,460) are achieved in this group confirming that Duncan – Smith’s promises to get them in to work are little more than newspaper headlines.

The most recent work assessment results show that between May 2010 and December 2014 the total of 37,770 jobs follow a staggering 4.2 million work (4,228,500) tests ordered by IDS.
