TOPIC: Regulation 27 for IB

Regulation 27 for IB 8 years 8 months ago #51598

  • COOKY44
could someone please tell me if Regulation 27 is still in force for Incapacity Benefit Medicals?
regulation 27(b), which states that you will be found incapable of work if:

‘there would be a substantial risk to the mental or physical health of any person if he were found capable of work’’

This regulation could apply to you on physical health or on mental health grounds.

For example, if you experience severe anxiety attacks and might harm yourself or somebody else if placed in a situation you find threatening, then this might be grounds for applying regulation 27(b).

Many Thanks in advance
