    You need to contact DWP first thing tomorrow morning, they open at 8. If it's either a PIP review or transfer from DLA then your money will most likely stop because you didn't attend the assessment.

    If it's a first claim then it's likely you'll be refused for not attending.

    How long were you out of the country for? and do you claim any other benefits?
