Telephone And Video PIP And ESA Assessments Now Enshrined In Law

March 10, 2021

With many thanks to Benefits And Work.

 

The government has passed legislation allowing the DWP to require a PIP or ESA claimant to take part in an assessment by telephone or by video as alternatives to a face-to-face assessment.

The new regulations, came into force on 25 March and enshrine all three options in law.

In the case of PIP, the regulations already stipulated that an assessment could be in person or by telephone, but the words ‘or by video’ have now been added.

In the case of ESA, the words ‘in person, by telephone or by video’ have been added.

You can download the new regulations from this link.
