Can you defer the date of a face to face assessment

My daughter's mother has died today after complications with cancer. She has an ESA face to face assessment 26 March. I don't think she will be able to attend for multiple reasons, I do not know when she would be able to do 'anything' at the moment. What are her options? Thank you

    Hello and condolences to your daughter, firstly I would phone the DWP or the number on the acessment request form and explain the circumstances of the need to delay, defere the F2F acessment process till a few weeks after the funeral if possible. After all they are human and should show some compassion.
