Capability for work questionnaire

Applepearmommabear Member Posts: 6 Listener
Hi everyone, I am needing some advice please, in january 2019 i won my apeal and was put in the support group, also not to be reassessed for 18 months from the date of jan 2019, which would take me to around july 2020.
A few days ago i have received a capability for work form and can`t understand why as it has only been 6 month since i won my court appeal!!
Could anyone please tell me if this is right, and what i should do as this has started me to panic ...
Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi @Applepearmommabear , unfortunately the DWP can decide to review your award anytime after 3 months have passed. :/ Is there any help available near you (Council Welfare Rights, CAB, etc.)? Hopefully others will have ideas on what else you can do... @thespiceman

    I'm afraid Waylay is correct. The length of time given by the Tribunal is just a guide and nothing more. You will need to fill out and return the form no later than the date stated in the letter. You need to make sure you send evidence to support your claim and put as much information as possible on the form.

    This link will help you find what's local to you for help with the form, if needed.

    Hi @Applepearmommabear, I'm sorry they have sent another form so close after winning your appeal. I understand how hard and stressful this must be!

    I too would recommend getting some face to face advice:

    I really hope things work out and please do let us know how you get on :)
