Hello, quite new to this forum so not quite sure where to put this, this seemed the most likely forum so apologies if wrong.


I have been on income support for 6 months, due to being estranged from my family at 18 years of age. However, recently out of the blue I received a letter from income support stating the following;


I am writing to tell you that we cannot pay you from 18/4/14


We have decided to stop paying Income Support because you have failed to return the A2 review form issued 7/3//14


Please reply to this letter within one calendar month of the date of the this letter. If you fail to do so, we may cancel your entitlement to benefit. Please tell us straight away if you cannot give us the information we require.


I am baffled as to why they have stopped my benefits without informing me about a review letter I was supposed to receive and complete. As of today I haven't received any such A2 review form.


Is there anything I can do from this stage? Does this mean I will have to re apply for Income support or is this merely a suspension until I give them what they require? I also have no possibility of appealing this decision.

Basically your benefit is simply suspended until you complete and return an A2 form. Call the DWP immediately, explain the situation, they will send you a form to complete. Send it straight back and your payments will resume as long as there are no changes to your circumstances.

If you are experiencing difficulties with your post, it might be worth asking if you can collect a copy of the A2 form from a local Job Centre. Alternatively, I found a download of the form here: http://www.nidirect.gov.uk/a2_is_review_from.pdf


Hopefully someone will confirm that that is the correct document.





No... you can't eat my brain just yet. I need it a little while longer.
