The processes by which people come to claim Incapacity Benefit (IB) are not well understood. This report aims to address this knowledge gap by presenting findings from a survey of a representative sample of recent claimants of IB in Great Britain.

The report provides detailed information on the characteristics and circumstances of new claimants of IB, and provides statistical information about the routes onto IB that were identified in a previous qualitative study (DWP Research Report No. 350).
