I would be grateful if someone could help. My son is autistic and has had his money stopped because he couldn't attend an appointment. I have appealed and tried to explain the reason why. But more or less been told tough. Thank you.
Hi @milly1999,If your son missed an appointment without giving an advanced notice this is probably a sanction. It doesn't matter why he missed the appointment, if someone misses an appointment they get sanctioned. I don't know whether he has to re-apply or be assessed for I haven't been sanctioned before.A sanction isn't the same as been denied benefits, a sanction is more like an exclusion or being in detention money wise.
