    Sounds like your appointment was cancelled due to your earnings during that assessment. When your earnings drop for future assessment periods then the appointments may start again. What is expected of you will depend on your claimant commiments.
    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.
