10. Conclusion

10.1 This is the first publication of the report on the impact of inflation on devolved social security assistance. The report has explained the Scottish Government's approach to uprating social security assistance for the financial year 2020-21. The Scottish Government will continue to consider CPI September rate as the most appropriate inflation measure for uprating of assistance. At the same time, we are committed to keeping our uprating policy under review and will consider alternative approaches if there is a material change to inflation measures.
