Was wondering if anyone else had been refused there assessors report ..just phoned the dwp asking for a copy to be sent and they said they couldn't send it until a decision  had been made. When I asked  why he said they can't send it out anymore . I'm  sure iv read other people got it before there decision had been made .

    Hi @dottie_dot

    In NI they won't send it out until the decision is made, but in the rest of the UK they've been sending them out when people ask for them (well, usually). Could be a new thing, but the person you talked to might not know what they're talking about. DWP telephony agents get it wrong a LOT. Call back and speak to someone else?

    Hi,

    If you live in the UK just ring them back, chances are you'll speak to someone totally different who will agree to send it out to you.

    It's not a new thing, you do get some people from DWP refusing to send it out...when they say this, you know they're indeed fobbing you off.

    Don't worry about being a pest, phone them back, it's a report that has been written about you and you are entitled to see what has been written about you. I'm sure dwp are inventing their own internal policies just to be flipping awkward!

    Hi. Just a update..phoned up this morning  asking for a copy of my face to face assessment report and the lady on the phone said yes I will send it out today..she checked and said they hadn't received  it back from ASOS yet but would post it out once they have received it. 
     Let's see if they do .
