(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Social Security (Incapacity Benefit Work-focused Interviews) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2005 (“the principal Regulations”) to increase the number of persons that can be required to attend work-focused interviews as a condition of their continued entitlement to full benefit. The principal Regulations apply to certain persons who claim incapacity benefit, severe disablement allowance, income support on the grounds of incapacity benefit or income support whilst they are appealing a decision which embodies a determination that they are not incapable of work (“specified benefit”).

Regulation 2(2) amends the principal Regulations to include persons who reside in certain postcode districts and make a claim to a specified benefit on or after 30th October 2006.

Regulation 2(3) substitutes the Schedule to the principal Regulations to extend the postcode districts to which the principal Regulations apply.

These Regulations make in relation to Northern Ireland only provision corresponding to provision contained in Regulations made by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions in relation to Great Britain and accordingly, by virtue of section 149(3) of, and paragraph 10 of Schedule 5 to, the Social Security Administration (Northern Ireland) Act 1992, are not subject to the requirement of section 149(2) of that Act for prior reference to the Social Security Advisory Committee.


1992 c. 8; section 2A was inserted by Article 54 of the Welfare Reform and Pensions (Northern Ireland) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/3147 (N.I. 11)) and section 165(7A) was inserted by paragraph 58 of Schedule 9 to that Order


See Article 8(b) of S.R. 1999 No. 481


The definition of “relevant person” was substituted by regulation 2(2) of S.R. 2006 No. 167
