TOPIC: Does Assessment Period Count?

Does Assessment Period Count? 7 years 8 months ago #78682

  • Sickofit
Now that the one-year cut-off for contribution-based ESA has been defeated in the House of Lords,will the assessment period be counted in any future revision of this Bill - say, from one year to two years? Or will the two-year rule start from when you are actually placed in the contribution-based WRAG?

Hi SOI,

We will not know for sure until The Bill is passed into legislation, see Gordon's post here :

www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/forum?func=vie...imit=6&start=6#78680

You can keep a check on the progress of "The Bill" in our FAQ's, here :
The Welfare Reform Bill 2011
