8 We will take a broad, rather than a strict, view on these re-claims on the basis that many conditions can interact in complex ways making it difficult to assign the effects of disability on any one condition.

11 The term "habitual residence" is not defined in social security legislation. In deciding whether a person is actually habitually resident, decision makers consider a wide variety of factors.

17 These provisions are to allow for the upper age limit to rise in line with State Pension age once that has been aligned between men and women and begins rising. Changes to state retirement pension brought forward under the Pensions Act 2011 mean that State Pension age will start rising from age 65 to 66 in 2018. Further rises will occur at later dates.
