    F-2-F's to restart in MAY

    Anounced on Monday - F2F assessments for PIP, ESA/UC WCA's, are to restart in May.

    (F2F assessments for IIDB will restart on 12th April).

    Face-to-face assessments for Work Capability Assessments (WCAs) (for claims for the additional health amount of Universal Credit and Employment and Support Allowance) and Personal Independence Payment (PIP), will resume from May. Initially, this will only be for those who we are unable to fully assess by other channels.

    People will be invited for their appointments by letter, which will clearly set out what to expect at their appointment.

    Face-to-face assessments will take place alongside existing paper-based assessments, and telephone assessments (for WCAs and PIP), which will continue to take place where suitable.

    The Department for Work and Pensions has worked with its assessment providers to ensure that assessment centres are fully compliant with COVID-19 safety measures ......
    So telephone assessments will also continue if you can have one, F2F will be for those who can't have a telephone assessment.

    There is also claimant guidance for if you are invited to a F2F under covid:
