    Hi @alrb and welcome

    This is completely untrue and is one of the ongoing myths. HCP's do not receive any bonus for failing a claimant. An HCP's job is to assess your functionality with regard to the descriptors. Unfortunately, despite believing that they do meet the criteria, some claimants, especially when moving from DLA do not and therefore do not receive the award they think they deserve.
    There are some assessors that are overly harsh but they do not receive any bonus
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    I have read that if they can do an extra assessment they get £50 wage that tells me they are under pressure to complete the assessment to earn extra, a little bit like peace work, it makes me suspicious about lots of HCP's who have lost there jobs and been prosecuted for fraud. I must admit with this government nothing surprises me
