The Scottish Government are becoming responsible for some of the benefits currently delivered by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
Social Security Scotland
To prepare for this change, the Scottish Government set up the Social Security Experience Panels.
2400+ people with experience of benefits = Social Security Experience Panels
Experience Panel members all have experience of claiming at least one of the benefits being devolved to Scotland.
The Scottish Government is working with Experience Panel members to design Scotland's new social security system.
