Social security law determines an individual’s entitlement to a spectrum of welfare benefits, including Income Support, Incapacity Benefit, Disability Living Allowance and housing and council tax benefit. The legislation – much of which is set out in complex and fast-changing regulations governing eligibility – often raises difficult questions of construction and interpretation. Individual cases may well raise questions of EC and human rights law, while Tribunal cases at first instance may involve detailed medical evidence.
