The specific breakdown you have requested is not available.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has no business need for a breakdown of this type and therefore our systems do not have this functionality.

In 2018/19, DWP’s Fraud and Error estimates show that underpayments of Personal Independence Payment fell from 4.2% to 3.8%. Claimant error remains the biggest cause of underpayments.

DWP continues to look at ways in which we can prompt claimants to tell us about changes that affect their benefits.
