US firm Maximus 'awarded contract to assess fitness-to-work'

American company Maximus is taking over the contract to assess the fitness of benefits claimants to work, the BBC understands.

French firm Atos, the previous service provider, quit the contract in March.

It has been estimated the new deal will be worth approximately £500 million over three-and-a-half years.

Maximus is already used by the Department for Work and Pensions to carry out welfare-to-work schemes in the south-east of England.
