Non Means Tested Benefits is Volume I of the 2023/24 edition of the series Social Security Legislation. It is both a scholarly and practical guide, focusing on the non means tested benefit provisions under social security legislation—including disability benefits such as Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and both ‘new-style’ Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) and ‘new-style’ Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)—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 Upper Tribunal (previously the Social Security Commissioners), and the definitions of key statutory terms. Tables of Upper Tribunal decisions and court cases, as well as of Commissioners’ decisions 1948–2009, are included for easy reference.
