    Never allow DWP assertions to define you. They never have evidence of your true circumstances.

    Hi @barnettmiranda69. We can try our best! What email provider do you use? They work similarly but slightly differently  :)

    Hello and welcome to the community @barnettmiranda69 :) How are you?

    I don't believe there is currently a way to get in touch with the DWP via email for general enquiries. You could call them and request email communication as a reasonable adjustment? 

    Do you much prefer email communication?


    Feel free to have a look around the community and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 I have included below a few of the pages I’d recommend having a look through to get used to things:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.

    Hi @barnettmiranda69

    I see, thanks for replying and providing more details :)  I appreciate that it can be really frustrating, and the entire process should be made more accessible.

    If it's something you'd be interested in, do you have any friends or loved ones who could call on your behalf and request email communication as a reasonable adjustment for you? I've known it to be permitted before as an alternative to somebody always being required to get in touch via phone.

    It takes a long time to get to where you want and to get a response. Be sure to include what department of DWP you are trying to send to, your National Insurance number and other details to help them identify you and your claim
