An Assessment of the Financial Incentive to Work of Recipients of Illness and Disability Schemes

This paper analyses the financial incentive faced by people with disabilities (PWD) on the Department of Social Protection’s (D/SP) main disability and illness related schemes to take up employment or if employed to increase labour market participation. These include Disability Allowance (DA), Illness Benefit (IB), Invalidity Pension (IP) and Partial Capacity Benefit (PCB). The study has been prepared as an analytical input into the work of the Making Work Pay for People with Disabilities Interdepartmental Working Group Report.
