Social security: policy position papers

Collection of documents setting out our position on matters relating to the development of the devolved social security benefits in Scotland.


Introduction

Collection of documents setting out our position on matters relating to the development of the devolved social security benefits in Scotland.

Please note that due to the impact on the Scottish Government, Social Security Scotland and all our public services of managing Scotland through the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to take the extremely difficult decision to delay the launch of Scottish disability assistance. As soon as we are able to provide information about the new timescales for launching disability assistance we will do so.

The content of each paper was correct at the time of publication.
