Iain Duncan Smith defends disability benefit reforms - UK - Scotsman.com

Iain Duncan Smith defends disability benefit reforms - UK - Scotsman.com | IDS | Scoop.it
REFORMS to disability benefits will end the ‘ridiculous’ system that gives people lifetime awards, Iain Duncan Smith has claimed.
Angela Sinclaire Mizel's insight:

Could it in fact mean that some people who were not claiming DLA, were not claiming it because they did not know they could get it and, this reform has just informed them that they can! I know lots of elderly people that have now become disabled and, need help did not know they could get Attendance Allowance until I told them because they were not told by the DWP and, should have been. After all DWP will not freely tell you what you are qualify for, you have to learn about it by word of mouth... Thank you so much IDS for letting people out there know what they are in fact entitled to.
