Weird letter

I applied for change of circumstance a month ago, heard nothing back but pip have sent a letter to my carer asking if they are still my appointee and if I am still vulnerable any one else had this?

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    That seems quite normal if they are your appointee 

    I don't think it is anything to worry about

    I would guess that as you have an appointee the DWP would expect them to be acting on your behalf, not you reporting a change of circumstance yourself. They will need to establish whether you still need an appointee and/or whether they should be acting on what you have told them. 
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Nothing of the sort I’d guess.

    DWP have been busy reacting to claimant deaths by appointing safeguarding leads all over most of the UK allied to new processes around vulnerability. If a case has a vulnerability marker then existing processes are bypassed.
