Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) as being described as a passive benefit which does not give people incentive to find a job, and proposes abolishing the work-related activity group (WRAG) category.
The paper seen by BBC News was written by the Department for Work and Pensions before the general election in May.
It is marked “not government policy”, but the BBC understands the proposals are still under consideration.
About two million people in the UK receive the Employment and Support Allowance, in some form.
It is paid out to disabled or sick people who are unable to work or need help getting back to work.
