Benefit Deaths

G Ward made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Department for Work and Pensions.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I have seen the recent release by Department re ESA deaths who where found fit for work released on 27/8/2015.

DWP recently generated ASMRs (age standardised mortality rates) for many categories of claimant, but not for the category of most interest: those who have been taken off IB/SDA after being found fit for work. Many of these move to JSA or other benefits so can I please have those statistics of those who died within 14 days after transferring to JSA or other benefits from IB /ESA .

Yours faithfully,

G Ward

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Work and Pensions's handling of my FOI request 'Benefit Deaths'.

Hello,there is considerable delay on this request therefore I am requesting internal review in the hope a explanation can be found as to why the dept has not replied to this request given that the information is readily available to the dept.

Regards
G Ward

Dear DWP IGS FOI,

I cannot see the justification of £600 limit for the information I requested given the fact you have already collated such statistics in previous releases, therefore the information should already be available to you without such charges applied.

Yours sincerely,

G Ward

DWP IGS FOI, Department for Work and Pensions
