Work cabability assessment, what to do if I can't attend the assessment!
I posted on these forums in the last 6 months about my work cabability assessment and how i had waiting over 15 weeks for a reply i recieved my answer and was put into the limited capability for work, i have been told i have to attend my appointment at the job centre tomorrow as they are mandatory but i can barely leave my house due to my anxiety i know that if i dont go i will get money taken from me and struggle to pay my bills, i have wrote in my journal twice now saying to have my meeting changed to over the phone and once was ignored and the second time recieved a reply saying the meeting is mandatory, i am currently waiting on my mandatory reconsideration and i am wondering if there's anything i can do? I have barely left my house since my result as my anxiety is running rampant at the thought of having to do everything the job centre tells me, even my doctor has said i shouldn't have to go to meetings, what are my options if any?
