Detail

This publication presents management information on early results from a joint Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunal Service (HMCTS) pilot exercise within Great Britain.

The pilot data of this document are for appeals that have been cleared at hearing and allowed by the Social Security and Child Support (SSCS) Tribunal between 9 July 2012 and 31 October 2012, where primary reasons for why Judges overturn DWP decisions have been collected for the first time.

The purpose of this pilot scheme is to provide insight and learning for DWP, with the intention of improving standard of decision making and appeals processes in the future.

DWP publishes a range of statistics on topics including our employment programmes, benefits, pensions and household income. For more information see Statistics at DWP.
