6 months interval jobcentre interviews

Hi Everyone !   I am on ESA WRAG for over a year and had to attend a jobcentre interview ever 3 or 4 months but my last interview was 6 months after the previous interview and was told during the interview that I will be seen again in around 6 months time.
I want to know if this is age related because I am in my sixties or is it a change in the rules for the ESA WRAG group.
Reading in this forum it appears that the interval between interviews is much shorter than 6 months.
Thank you all

    Hi,

    It really depends on the work coach you have. Some people have to attend the appointment every couple of months, while others not as often. It's nothing to do with your age. I really wouldn't worry about it and just wait for the letter for your next appointment.

    Thanks for the reply,
    I was just curious, I thought might have changed the rules but apparently not.
