Pension, Disability and Carers Service
The PDCS brought together two former separate executive agencies, The Pension Service and the Disability and Carers Service. These two agencies kept their corporate branding and provided services under their separate identities. The decision was made due to the two agencies sharing roughly fifty percent of the same customers and as a single agency, the rationalisation of services would provide a better service for customers.
Its status as an executive agency was removed on 1 October 2011 with its functions being brought back inside the DWP. The former entities are now separate once again.
