Social Security Law in the United Kingdom

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this book describes the social security regime in the United Kingdom. It conveys a clear working knowledge of the legal mechanics affecting health care, employment injuries and occupational diseases, incapacity to work, pensions, survivors’ benefits, unemployment benefits and services, and family benefits.

The analysis covers the field of application, conditions for entitlement, calculation of benefits, financing, the institutional framework, and relevant law enforcement and controls. Allowances for retirees, employees, public sector workers, the self-employed, and the handicapped are all clearly explained, along with full details of claims, adjudication procedures, and appeals.


Succinct yet eminently practical, the book will be a valuable resource for lawyers handling social security matters in the United Kingdom. It will be of practical utility to those both in public service and private practice called on to develop and to apply social security law and policy, and of special interest as a contribution to the comparative study of social security systems.
