Summary: Transgender and Income and Poverty

MoneySummary: Transgender and Income and Poverty

The Scottish Government currently does not have information on the experiences and position of transgender people in relation to income and poverty.

Regarding welfare reform, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has published an Equality Impact Assessment for the Universal Credit. This explains that the Department for Work and Pensions does not hold information on its administrative systems on gender reassignment, but also that it does not envisage any adverse impacts on these grounds.
