This report details findings from a study conducted to explore the destinations of a cohort of individuals who ended a claim for Jobseekers Allowance (JSA), Income Support (IS) and Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).
The study aimed to provide the best possible estimate of the immediate and substantive destinations of leavers from JSA, IS and ESA benefit groups. The study explores:
- movement into paid employment and the sustainability of this employment for each benefit group
- movement onto and between different out-of-work benefits
- other reasons for ending a benefit claim
Information on leavers’ salaries and number of hours worked was also collected.
