Social Security (Act) 2018: progress report 2019 to 2020

This report is published under Section 20 of the Social Security (Scotland) Act 2018 which requires Scottish Ministers to report annually on the performance of the Scottish social security system.

Section 20 of the Act sets out the requirements for the content of the report. It must include what has been done in the past year to meet the expectations on Scottish Ministers set out in the Charter. This report will therefore be published alongside our report on the Charter Measurement Framework which will confirm how well we are delivering against the commitments set out in the Charter and help us to improve that delivery.

The report should be read alongside the annual report published by Social Security Scotland. That report contains more of the detail on the performance of the Scottish social security system and operational delivery including information on the payments made by it up to the end of March 2020. Social Security Scotland’s annual report also includes its audited annual accounts and delivery of its Strategic Objectives. Both reports together provide a full picture of delivery of the system.
