Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit is a benefit for people who have become ill or disabled either as a result of an accident at work (industrial accident) or a prescribed disease. Click the link to see the Prescribed Diseases List. This link takes you to the DWP Website. This scheme does not cover certain groups of people, e.g. if you are self employed, a member of the Armed Forces or some trainees.
The amount you receive is dependent on your individual circumstances. The level of your disability will affect the amount of benefit you may receive. You will be assessed by a 'medical advisor' on a scale of 1-100%. Normally you must be assessed as 14% disabled or more to be able to get the benefit.
