I have been having stress with the DWP. If you are on benefits and every time you receive any money and your NI number is known the DWP will know about it. Get permission to work forms when ever possible
So this will include pension and any other taxable income. It can be stressful cos they know why they want to see you however they only issue a standard letter so you do not know why they want to see you.
They assume you know difference between ESA, DLA, and other benefits plus you understand everything on a bank statement. My wife does the finances but not allowed to attend the interview. It is a bit of a ‘Spanish inquisition’ and leaves a nasty taste in the mouth
