So in relation to my previous post , I had to start a new claim , I had my first meeting at the job centre at the start of January which I attended , I verified everything and was told everything was sorted , since then my first "pay date" has come and gone and I received nothing and they were mentioning arranging a home visit to see "if I needed an appointee" which I've told them I don't. Last Friday someone came round , I didn't answer the door because didn't know who it was , they put a letter through the door stating how they came due to the prior arrangement , an arrangement that hadn't been made. 
They've since sent a letter , which I received today arranging to come round next Monday. Can anyone advise me in relation to this?? i really could do without strangers coming to my home if I can avoid it , I suffer with anxiety , depression , Borderlinepersonalitydisorder and adhd , do I have to agree etc? any advice I'd be extremely grateful 
thank you

    For the payment you didn't receive have you checked your journal to see if there's anything on your "to do list" if there is then this could be a reason why you didn't receive your payment. If not then did you put a message onto your journal to enquire about the missed payment?

    Have they told you what the reason is why they want to visit you at home?


    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.

    Hi @poppy123456 , there's nothing on my to-do list,  they just saying things are pending. they told me that the home visit was to see if I need an appointee although I've told them I don't.
    I now have the local MP involved and they have made contact on my behalf

    @Alex_Scope yes of course I'll let you know what happens but I emailed the mp all what's happened after speaking with someone briefly and then within two days I had an email telling me they'd contacted dwp on my behalf so just a case of waiting now

    I did advise you to contact your local MP in your other thread.
