Removal of all benefits

If a person has been unemployed for 12 months or more and has not engaged with the DWP, the government have proposed that they would stop their benefits entirely.

This is a significant change from the current sanctions regime, which stops a claimant’s standard allowance but continues payments for children and housing and allows hardship payments.

The proposal is to make this change in the next Parliament.
