Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I am making a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
All three requests listed below should cover the years 2010 to the present day.
1) I would like the statistics for the number of claimants who have died after their benefits have been reduced or denied. This should include the following benefits:
Personal Independence Payment
Disability Living Allowance
2) I would like the average time that sick claimants are on Employment Support before their benefits are reassessed, the total numbers on ESA, the numbers and percentage moved from ESA to Job Seekers Allowance.
3) I request the number of claimants who are critically ill and denied benefits, whether ESA, PIP or DLA.
B O' Grady
