I dont know how to link things...but i have just googled dwp and coronavirus, and found that the dwp announced as from 17th march that all assessments for health ie disability and universal credit sick benefits, are suspended for three months. Some may be done by phone and some on paper.

I am on JSA and I just had a call from the job centre telling me I do not have to sign on tomorrow, benefits will paid as usual, and they do not know when the next appointment will be, looks like they are stopping in person signings for everyone.

Work Capability/health face to face appointments stopped and some Job Centre appointments also stopped, probably for the same reason.  If you don't have not enough staff  to see people, then for as long as this lasts, they will make payments  where possible and catch up with people later.  


We could do with some help from you.
