Not sure how this works as I'm new but wanted to pick somebody's brains...I had my pip renewal form in October sent it off then 4 weeks ago I received a letter saying they needed more info off my doc etc so i rang them as i was anxious my money was about to stop and they then dragged me in for an assesment 3 days later...should I not have rang?

    I had my first assesment just over 2 years ago and I had no choice but to go for the assesment they said

    Most people have to attend face to face assessments. If you don't attend your benefits will stop.
