    I would call DWP and ask why? Were the two previous assignments done by the same company? ATOS or CAPITA?

    Hi,

    Ring the assessment providers not DWP because the assessments have nothing to do with DWP. The number will be at the top of the letter you received.

    I have never heard of this to be honest.

    Are you absolutely sure they are/were all for PIP and not ESA as well?

    Hi Crunchie93,

    I have come across a rare occasion where a claimant had two face to face assessments but clear reasons were given that the decision maker wasn't happy with the outcome of the first one and wanted another one conducting, but three is ridiculous. What's the point of doing the first two if they want a third? You certainly need to make a phone call and ask for a full explanation of why they keep sending you for these. As Poppy has said, you may be having a ESA one as well as a PIP one.
