Eligibility for disability benefits is assessed based on the functional impact of a claimant’s health condition or disability, rather than the condition or disability itself.

The Department keeps its disability benefits, including Employment and Support Allowance and Personal Independent Payment, and the assessments used to determine eligibility for these under review.
