Benefits review letter

Hi I’ve just received a benefits review letter from DWP and due to have a phone interview on 17/04/19. Just wondering if anybody has experience of this and what it entails. It’s a bit worrying!

They want to know whether anything has changed and HOW it affects your ability to do things. If you kept a copy, look over what you wrote when you applied. When did you write it and has anything happened in the intervening time?

You need to state even the most obvious things - like “No I still cannot walk 20 metres, cook, wash without help” etc.

If you are not sure, ask them to explain the question. Don’t be rushed - they want to get you through it asap.

Partner has just had a f2f for a review and you have to be so careful. They are weighing up every word and action you say or do.
