    UPDATE- ALL (re)assessments suspended.

    As from today, 24th March, ALL new assessments and reassessments for ESA, UC, and PIP have been suspended.

    If you already have a PIP appointment then you will be contacted about what will happen now.

    Similarly if you have already been referred to CHDA for a WCA under ESA or UC then you will also be contacted.

    Information for claimants

    what this means for you:

    • there will be no new reviews or reassessments across all benefits for three months – this includes Universal Credit (UC), Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance and the Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit.
    • face-to-face assessments for all sickness and disability benefits have been suspended for the next 3 months including for any new claims.
    • PIP claimants, if an assessment has already taken place this will continue to be processed. If an assessment has been scheduled, claimants will be contacted by the assessment provider to discuss how this will be taken forward.
    • ESA and UC claimants whose cases have been referred to the provider will be contacted to take this forward.
