DWP provides further information about ‘Proof of Concept’ on starting from point of no conditionality for universal credit claimants awaiting WCA
Minister confirms that small scale test will be evaluated in Autumn 2019 ‘after which we will determine next steps’

The DWP has provided further information about the ‘Proof of Concept’ on starting from a point of no conditionality for universal credit claimants who are awaiting a work capability assessment (WCA) that was confirmed by Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd on 5 March 2019.

Responding yesterday to a written question in parliament, DWP Minister Alok Sharma said –

‘The Department is still finalising the design of the Proof of Concept and seeking input from key representatives from the sector. It is a small scale test which will be run in two-four jobcentres during summer 2019. We will use the Proof of Concept to test whether we can increase engagement with claimants with disabilities or health conditions. Work Coaches will start with no mandatory requirements and then tailor conditionality up, based on an individual’s circumstances.

We intend to apply it to those claimants pre-WCA; and, that, for those post WCA found to have a limited capability for work. We will apply it to all claimants presenting with medical evidence of a health condition, or disability, excluding only those who are terminally ill or who have conditions defined in schedule 8 or schedule 9 of the Universal Credit Regulations [2013]. Universal Credit does not use the ICD10 classification system for claimants recognising that each claimant is unique. Further detailed design on inclusion/exclusion criteria have yet to be defined.

The evaluation of the Proof of Concept will take place in Autumn 2019 after which we will determine next steps.’
