    Transitional Addition is NOT ENDING.

    Good news for anyone who still has an IB-ESA Transitional Addition.

    All IB-ESA TA's were due to end on 5th April 2020.

    But new legislation has been passed to repeal that clause in the original legislation and TA's will now continue to be paid after 5th April 2020.
    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2020/102/made

    It's the "(c) omit paragraph (C)" that is the new clause that removes the 5th April 2020 date from the original legislation, which can be seen here:
    https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/...lation/21/made

    It had been expected that increases in ESA rates would have eroded most/all TA's by 2020, but the benefit freeze scuppered that and so this change has now been put in place.

    IB-ESA Transitional Additions will now continue to be paid until they are eroded by ESA rates catching up, or lost by a change of circumstances.

    It's a bit surprising that they have done this when they didn't really need to.
    I guess someone saw negative headlines looming again? Although the press don't seem to have noticed this new legislation yet.
