    They are often random checks.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    We can't tell you why you've been sent this. You can ring the number on the letter and ask them what it's related to and they maybe able to give you some more information. You need to make sure you attend the interview (even if it's a phone call) otherwise any benefits it's related to could be suspended.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Poppy123456 Sorry about that I am not too sure how to reply to a post on here when it is to a particular person.

    The letter I received does not have a telephone number only a textphone number so I was not sure who to call so I have had the usual 1 hour wait trying to get through to the number I thought I needed to call. I only claim ESA contribution based and PIP so I gave ESA number a call and a very helpful gentleman took my call and all my details and his answer to my question was that there was nothing at all on the system about me having a compliance telephone interview . I will have to call the number for PIP which will be another hours wait and then getting cut off and then call again and be on hold for another hour we all know this scenario I’m sure.
    I do know that my PIP review form is with an assessor they received it on 17th of last month which I sent to them 15 months ago so possibly it is something to do with that.

    Thanks for your reply, Is that fact or hearsay?

    I have known people have compliance interviews for PIP. It could also be related to your ESA, even though it's New style ESA. I don't know if either ESA or PIP will know about the interview.
