    How do these people manage to sleep at night knowing that THEIR actions cause unknown problems for the poor people that they sanction, I know if it was me I would do my best not to sanction people who are already suffering.

    More DWP / coalition misery en_route. They intend abolishing the assessment period for those on pension credit, these periods mean that you don’t have to inform the DWP of income / capital increases. Imagine then if these periods are abolished perhaps following life assurance pay outs after a partners death, your pc is revised down. I’ve found out about this by accident DWP is being very secrative about this change.elderly people are not being informed therefore and consequently can’t protest this is scheduled for 2016.

      IDS is a congenital lier, and really has no place in any public job. In fact he doesn’t deserve to be allowed to live

    Hopefully the Tories won’t be in a position to abolish anything after May 7th next. 🙂

    This change is being done very quietly minus any headlines , it’s a tiny line in DWP pc info. The impact on those deferring private pensions selling property to trade down or getting an insurance payout following the death of a partner will affect the amount of pc awarded. And if cancelled affects prescription costs, dental treatment etc etc. As usual the DWP and coalition are being sly and secretive, because if widely known there would be a huge public backlash. Remembering of course the elderly have a large vote.
