This report also presents the latest statistics on type and volume of Tribunal cases that were received, disposed of or outstanding as of the first quarter of the financial year 2013/14 (April to June 2013).

 This report also includes the Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) information which relates to the financial year 2012/13.

The increase in the overall number of receipts was mainly due to the 57% increase in the number of appeals received in SSCS compared to April to June 2012. SSCS hears appeals against decisions made by DWP on a number of different benefits as well as against decisions made by other government the increase in this quarter was driven by appeals in relation to Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), which increased by 86% and accounted for two thirds of all SSCS receipts in April to June 2013. There was also an increase of 10% in Employment receipts, and an 18% increase in the number of receipts for Immigration and Asylum compared to April to June 2012.

42% of ESA cases cleared at hearing
having the original decision revised in favour of the claimant.

For the last 12 months, the number of cases cleared - success rate - number of successful appeals:

Q1’13-14 77,227 – 42% - 32,435
Q4'12-13 68,394 – 43% - 29,409
Q3'12-13 58,276 – 42% - 24,475
Q2'12-13 53,256 – 42% - 22,367

TOTAL                               108,596

PER WORKING DAY                  434 (ie basically 1 successful ESA appeal per minute of every working day for 12 months)

To those figures you can add 20,000+ pa incorrect decisions that are overturned each year on reconsideration to the WRAG....(figures for the Support Group do not seem to be available)

Hi guys

do you know if anyone has calculated any cumulative totals for everyone transferred from IB to ESA (or not) since the policy was brought in?

For example:
how many IB claimants were there?   How many have still not been assessed for transfer to ESA?
How many IB claimants have been re-assessed?
How many former IB claimants were placed directly into the support group?
How many former IB claimants were initially found fit for work and were transferred to the support group on appeal?
How many former IB claimants were initially found fit for work and were transferred to the WRAG on appeal?
How many former IB claimants were initially placed in the WRAG and were transferred to the support group on appeal?
[Were any of those initially placed in the WRAG and found fit for work on appeal?]
How many former IB claimants were found fit for work and did not appeal?
How many former IB claimants were placed in the WRAG and did not appeal?
How many former IB claimants were placed in the support group and did not appeal?
and finally:
what are the total numbers (after taking account of the result of appeals) of former IB claimants found fit for work; placed in the WRAG & placed in the support group?

Do say if I have missed something, but hopefully that example would give us a complete picture of the impact of this policy on disabled people since its implementation...
regards, Deb

Actually most of that info is published regularly in DWP data releases.

Deb,

Table 10 of:

https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/224809/esa_wca_201307_v0c.xls

has info on IB reassessments, but only up to Nov 2012.

They show 346,500 put into the WRAG; 267,500 into the Support Group and 227,000 "fit for work" (Total 841,000). Those figures will alter slightly as the effect of appeals in the most recent months will not be fully taken into account.

The IB caseload figures (to Feb 2013) can be seen on the DWP tabulation tool:

 http://tabulation-tool.dwp.gov.uk/100pc/ib/ccdate/ctdurtn/a_carate_r_ccdate_c_ctdurtn.html

A very good site for analysis of DWP figures is this one:

This site also has lots of statistical info:

It might be worth trying a Freedom of Information request to try and answer all your specific questions.
