Abstract

The specification of categories (unemployment, old age, disability, etc) is a well-established feature of social security. However, disability categories are problematic: the evidence on which decisions have to be made is complex, and understandings of the nature of disability are highly contested. Disability categories could be reformed by unification with other categories used in the same policy area (e.g. unemployment) or by fragmentation into new, smaller categories, particularly through the use of casework.
