Non Means Tested Benefits and Employment and Support Allowance is Volume I of the 2019/20 edition of the series Social Security Legislation. It is both a scholarly and practical guide, focusing on non means tested benefit provisions—apart from those on Jobseeker’s Allowance, which are covered as a whole in Volume II—and on employment and support allowance that raise important issues before First-tier Tribunals, the Upper Tribunal and the courts. Issued to all judges and members of the Tribunals, it provides key source materials and authoritative commentary to the legislation in this complex area.

The text includes all relevant statutory material, including the date and effect of amendments, with commentary taking account of decisions of the courts, the Commissioners, and the definitions of key statutory terms. Tables of cases (including Upper Tribunal decisions) and Commissioners’ decisions 1948–2009 are included for easy reference.

This volume covers:

  • Contributions credits and home responsibilities protection
  • Matters common to several non means tested benefits (e.g. persons abroad, computation of earnings and dependency)
  • Disability benefits
  • State maternity benefits
  • Bereavement benefits, retirement pension and graduated retirement benefit
  • “Old Style” Employment and Support Allowance
  • Industrial injuries and prescribed industrial diseases
  • Vaccine damage payments
  • Mesothelioma payments
  • “New Style” Employment and Support Allowance
