    Heya @anniebbs and welcome to the community. 😊

    It sounds like they're asking you to go in for a quick review, it's nothing sinister, it's just to check you're receiving the right money. It can happen from time to time, I've had to have one myself and it was no problem.

    That's not something I've looked into to be honest, but I've seen a fair few people on here ask about them. They like to do it in person so they can check over bank statements with you there if they have any questions. It's annoying, especially as so many job centres aren't exactly accessible.
