P.I.P.  rang me to day and asked me to attend an interview on Thursday in a town 30 miles away from me. My last interview was in my town. Is this normal or can I ask them to do it in my town at a later date.

    Welcome to the community @Bailie

    This info is from My PIP assessment website.

    "Consultations take place in lots of places around the country. Some of the places are dedicated Centres for PIP consultations. Others are also used for other things as well, such as physiotherapy sessions or Medical Centres. All of the centres that we use for PIP consultations are listed on our website. The list is split into regions to help you find ones near to where you live. We update the list as new Centres open.

    How is your consultation centre chosen?

    If we decide we need to see you for a face-to-face consultation we will send you an appointment letter. See our post ‘Will a face-to-face consultation always be required if I claim PIP’ for an explanation of when you would need to be seen. The appointment will be at one of the Centres near to where you live. It won’t necessarily be the nearest Centre. This is because there might not have been any appointments available there at the time the appointment was booked.  

    Can you change your PIP consultation appointment?

    Yes, you can change your appointment. You can change it to another day or time. You can also change the Centre that the appointment is at. We're only allowed to change your appointment once and if you miss your appointment without a good reason, DWP may end your PIP claim. Your appointment letter tells you how to contact us to change your appointment or ask any other questions that you might have."
