The Brexit Party released their ‘contract’ today which sets out their priorities for the next government.
There is very little in the document specifically aimed at benefits claimants.
All the Brexit contract offers is to
- Support those who have paid into the system with accelerated payment processes (five-week maximum), and continue to root out fraud.
- Undertake a 12-month review of the system and bring in reforms within two years.
- Review the position of women unexpectedly short-changed by recent rises in the state pension age.
- Extend the use of dormant funds to support civil society.
