Disability employment advisor phone appointment

ers_99x_x Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi all. I was recently found to have limited capability for work. I have been booked in for a phone appointment with a disability employment advisor but does anyone know what this is and what they do as I’ve researched but it doesn’t tell me much. I suffer with severe anxiety and depression I am currently in no right state of mind to work so I’m unsure what this is. Any help I’d be grateful for and what to expect. 

Thank you

    Hiya @ers_99x_x and welcome to the community!

    A call with a DEA is nothing to worry about, though as someone with bad anxiety, I can totally understand that's easier said than done! They'll just want to speak to you about possible options in the future, nothing will be forced upon you.
