The Government has some draft regulations out to consultation.
these regulations will decide when people will be moved from Incapacity Benefit to Employment Support Allowance.
These regulations allow for the transition to begin in October 2010. It will start with a small test to make sure it works administratively, as the plans mean that in full swing up to 10,000 people per week will be transferred.
Most people will be transferred from February 2011 and all people who were on Incapacity Benefit will be on Employment Support Allowance, or off benefits and in work by the end of March 2014 according to the Governemtn plans.
you cannot appeal your transfer.
You can have a say about the transfer rules in the Government’s consultation, up to February 8th.
