'DWP Corporate Abbreviations' last update 2011

People inducted or not into a specialism such as their own benefits casework get sucked into the practice of talking in abbreviations that mean nothing to those outside. There is an actual publicly accessible list of Department for Work & Pensions Corporate Abbreviations available online that comes to 37 pages. That has not been updated since January 2011 however. 

I wonder how much the non-publicly available list has been expanded since the last published one was made available? Looking through the linked document, I notice that some items that caseworkers come across frequently are not listed, such as, "What is an ESA50?"

Regarding what an ESA50 is, you could go to the Benefits & Work Publishing website and/or Benefits & Work Publishing for starters:
