A copy of the Short Term Benefits System Reference Guide which contains details of all variables on the incapacity benefit payment system has been placed in the Library.

The date on which the next personal capability assessment is due for those people receiving incapacity benefit who are required to undergo such an assessment cannot be provided except at disproportionate cost.
