work capability assessment, I dont know if anyone can advise on this but dont know who else toturnto
Is there anyone who can advise me on the following
I have been waiting for a work capability assessment now for the best part of 18 months (literally)
I have not received a appointment letter to come in for the assessment, I know there would be delays due to the covid situation but surely not this long. I am considering asking the dwp (via my journal) to find out why this is taking so long but I am literally scared the dwp would say if its taken THAT long we dont believe you have REALLY posted back the wca form (I assure you all I most definatley DID post it back but as I didnt get proof of postage I cant prove that I posted it back as I just popped it in the post box). I would then be worried the dwp would say as you havent posted the form back (in their opionion) we consider you to have not being entitled to uc for the last 18 months and are going to procecute you for benefit fraud. It must be noted my advisor cancelled all my work search requirements while I am awaiting this wca assessment. I have also not provided a fit note for over a year but wish to make it clear the dwp HAVEN'T asked me to provide one. I have a medically recognized neurological disorder that limits my outdoors mobility (I have to use a wheelchair to get out and about outdoors) but have a limited capacity to walk indoors.
