Disability Benefits (after CV)

What will happen to disability benefits when this is all over ?
I bet that they will be seen as a simple target for money saving by the government......
They can find £0.5T but not a few £100 thousand in normal times...

    Shouldn't this be in DT rather than here!
  • Whilst Poppy is perfectly correct i will answer anyway, most out of work benefits have had their biggest increase in years at 1.7% from last week, especially when you consider that inflation going forward is likely to be under 1%, to understand what will happen in the future you need to grasp what is happening in the here and now, personally I don't see any reductions in benefits in the immediate or near future, haven't we got enough to worry about with CV19 ?
