Any advice would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance. My partner recently had his dla suspended as the dla said they did not receive his change of address, it was due for renewal in October also and also due to change to pip. He receive the pip claim forms and it stated on the front page that if he did not send it back by the 13th dec his dla would stop, well it was sent back before the stated date, had a text message to conform this. His money was never reinstated and he had a home assessment last week, currently awaiting the decision of this but in the mean time we asked the assessor if she knkew why his dla had not been reinstated as suggested on the forma and she could not answer this. We are really confused as he has complied with what was asked of him but yet in the mean time he is still not receiving the benefit. I hope this makes sense and apologies for the length of writing.

    Hi whitt and welcome

    Have you rung the DWP and asked why as they have obviously now got the change of address ?

    Because you are required to report any change iincluding a change of address they could be difficult so you may need assisstance from CAB or similar.

    It is a good idea to also request a copy of the assessment report which will give you an indication of the possible outcome

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
