Scottish Commission on Social Security
The Scottish Commission on Social Security is an advisory non-departmental public body set up to provide independent scrutiny of the Scottish social security system (including benefit regulations) and hold Scottish Ministers to account.
The full functions of the Commission are set out in section 22 of the Social Security (Scotland) Act 2018.
The Commission is separate from the Scottish Government, and carries out its work independent of both Scottish Ministers and the Scottish Parliament.
Any information or documents published here are hosted on behalf of the Commission and are not to be considered part of the Scottish Government’s official record.
