    Hi marshall71,

    Best of luck for your special day. I hope you are able to put a sound case for your claim. If you are turned down or do not get what you feel you should remember to go through the hoops the way that the DWP instructs otherwise you will not get an appeal.

      I've been on the phone many times trying too get a face to face interview and every time DWP have come up with numerous excuses to say no the last call was in August last year and they wanted me too travel 60 miles round trip I was told too ring DWP and get my case fast tracked which they don't do at all. I have file back up of letters to use in my case

      Look into how to go about face to face intervies what to wear talk etc

      My health had changed since I put the paperwork into DWP.

      Regards

      Paul

      I'm a bringer of bad news, Paul.

      This is True.. and happened to me back last year.

      FACT : The DWP does not class any headed paper from them with content written by themselves as evidence. In their eyes, they will just say it was sent out in error via their computers. Even if you do quote it back to them, that means you are contradicting what the letter states at the end, which is "Please keep this correspondence for future reference", which is totally pointless.

      The guy I spoke to at the DWP, was such a liar it was so obvious - they get paid to lie anyway, I know that from ex-DWP employee's.

      I even pointed out to the guy, this "So, you are stating that all letters from your head office, of which I have 5 of, cannot be used as evidence against you?", and he said "No!"... rolleyes

      I even went through the correct channels with him, at the start of the call, which he was a bit dubious of giving me. You see, I know the correct way to track any person that I speak to at the DWP. He knew then that I was not just any person that phones them up, and asks straight away for some details. I said something along these lines "Before I speak to you, about my query I have a few details regarding to whom am I speaking to? By law, they must provide their first name, but they can withold information on their surname. Then I asked the following:

      Please can you give me your team identification ID?

      I will also need your DWP Centre Address?

      Also, note down the time, and how long you are on the phone call.

      There you go, something you may not know, but anyone reading this thread will benefit from.

      Regards,

      Les.

    Hiya Paul,

    Well, I wish you good luck, Paul - for the big day! If you do not mind me asking, how far is the Assessment Centre from where you are, as in miles?

    White envelope, you must be privileged - a one-off, automatic PIP Enhanced Rates! biggrin
