This book is the standard work on social security law. It aims to meet the needs of students, practitioners, tribunal chairmen and members and others in providing an overview of social security law together with an in-depth understanding of the complex rules which surround the subject.The new edition takes account of developments that have taken place since publication of the fourth edition in 1995. These include: the abolition of unemployment benefit and the introduction of jobseeker's allowance (Jobseekers Act 1995), fundamental changes to the decision making and appeals system and the social fund (Social Security Act 1998), the conversion of family credit and disability working allowance into tax credits (Tax Credits Act 1999), significant changes to widows' benefits and incapacity benefit (Welfare Reform and Pensions Act 1999). In part this reflects the change in government but there were also major changes after 1995 but before the fall of the Conservative administration in 1997. In particular under both governments there has been a large number of changes by regulations, especially to the means-tested benefits such as income support and housing benefit.""
