The purpose of our analysis is to examine what disabled people predict is likely to happen if government changes mean they are no longer eligible for support. We use DWP estimates as far as possible to examine potential costs to government.
Our analysis indicates that the abolition of working age DLA will lead to higher NHS and social care costs as well as causing thousands of disabled people to become unemployed.
