City A.M., 4 February 2016

City A.M. published an article covering Reform‘s latest report, Working welfare: a radically new approach to sickness and disability benefits, which argues that a radical overhaul of the current disability welfare system is needed.

The article highlighted the report’s key findings, including the fact that the higher benefit rate of Employment and Support Allowance is inadvertently encouraging people to stay on benefits rather than seeking work and, as part of the reform package, Employment and Support Allowance payments should be reduced.
