The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is responsible for welfare, pensions and child maintenance policy. As the UK’s biggest public service department, it administers the State Pension and a range of working age, disability and ill health benefits to around 18 million people.
They provide services and support in a number of ways, for example through Jobcentre Plus, The Pension Service and partner organisations. You can find out more on the Government website.
In this section there are pages about important carers and disability benefits, and your eligibility for them.
