Hi. Have the assements times changed. My review is due after Oct this year  after being awarded in April 2018.
But I've been reading it changed last year where DWP will now contact you 6 months before instead of a year before.
Is this true and where can I find the info on it please?
Thank you

    @DonDon, hello and welcome, the information you have is correct but due to the current situation we are in an time extension may be applied to your award if the situation continues.

    Thank you so really they won't contact me in Oct probably April 2021 or maybe later due to the circumstances.
    They haven't actually put this on the website about 6 months before have they?

    Hi @DonDon I don't believe it has been officially announced as such, but people have been reporting it since January. 

    I hope this helps. :)
