Slave #Britain: Benefit overpayments cost £3.5 BILLION a year #uk #ids #welfare #universalcredit

dwp_2170472bFar from saving money, Duncan Smith’s welfare reforms are costing the taxpayer more than ever.

Labour claim £3.5 BILLION a year being is wasted through fraud and overpayments as inefficient welfare reforms put pressure on already overstretched staff, official figures put the figure at £2.8 billion.

Duncan Smith claimed that he was going to tackle fraud within the benefit system, but instead of investing real resources into hunting down those who abuse the system, Duncan Smith has targeted the most vulnerable in society.

Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Rachel Reeves told the Daily Star newspaper “David Cameron and Iain Duncan Smith have repeatedly promised to cut fraud and error in the social security system, yet the latest Government figures show the value of overpayments by the Department of Work and Pensions rising, not falling, on their watch.”

The shambles that Duncan Smith refers to as welfare reform has already seen significant increases in the housing benefit bill as more people are forced into privately rented accommodation.

Problems with the ill-thought-out and implemented computer system for universal credit has cost the taxpayer over £40 million in work and equipment being written-off and is set to cost in excess of £400 million if it is ever implemented.

Rachel Reeves continued “Some £3.5bn has been overpaid in benefits in the last year and millions have been written off on their flagship welfare reform, Universal Credit. It’s time for them to get a grip.”

According to government propaganda Duncan Smith’s welfare reforms are a great success, but the FACTS tell a very different story.
