Abstract/Citation: Amends the Disability Working Allowance (General) Regulations 1991 and the Income Support (General) Regulations 1987 and are in part consequential on the coming into force of the Social Security (Incapacity for Work) Act 1994, which replaces sickness and invalidity benefits with incapacity benefit and provides for a new test of incapacity for work. Concerns in particular entitlement to income support when absent from Great Britain; appeals against decisions regarding incapacity for work; entitlement of students to income support; and the qualifying period for the disability premium on grounds of incapacity for work.
