Social Security Benefits: Mental Illness

Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN 222620, tabled on 28 January 2015

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer from the Minister of State for Care and Support of 23 January 2015 to Question 221072, what estimate he has made of the savings made by his Department as a result of 90,000 people moving off benefits and into work as a result of Improving Access to Psychological Therapy interventions.

DWP does not hold data regarding claimants’ health related interventions and IAPT services do not have any breakdown by benefit type of the 90,000 who have moved into work. It is therefore not possible to provide an informed estimate of the savings made.
