Thread: Benefit review help please

  1. #1

    Benefit review help please

    Hi, I've had a letter asking me to go for a review on 4th January. I currently receive enhanced rate pip for both components, and after being moved to a support group, I now also get contribution based ESA. (Prior to this I received nothing because my husband worked full time) Is a review 'normal' or should I be worried?

    Has your husband (or yourself) made any recent claims for any other benefits, JSA, ESA, Carers Allowance, housing benefit, anything of this sort?, assuming husband is no longer working.
    It may well be that you now qualify for Income Related payments, the best way to find out is ring the number on the letter and ask to speak to the officer named there.

    It should be nothing to worry about.

    It's usually just to check that your details are up to date on their records.

    They do like to try and keep track of people, especially if they have not seen them at the jobcentre for a while.

    As you are in support group they can't make you go to work focused interviews, so they will occasionally use a 'Benefits Review' as a way of getting you down to see them.

    As long as the letter doesn't use the words "compliance concern" or "under caution" then it shouldn't be a problem.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.
