    I still say good for her and her partner for pushing the problem and getting it resolved for her. I hope that their result helps others in the future and that these assessors take more care in what they report to the DM's.
    I wonder what bonus the assessor received for a failed assessment?

    Assessors getting a bonus for failures is a myth, it doesn't happen. But there is another related concern.

    The assessment companies get a set price per assessment carried out, whatever the DWP Decision Maker awards the assessment company gets exactly the same money.

    The assessors get a set salary, however they can get 'productivity' bonuses for completing more assessments per day/week.
    So the concern is that some assessors are rushing assessments and reports to do more, and so not doing them properly.
