Work Focused Interview

Postby Dai » Sat Apr 30, 2016 3:20 pm

My wife got awarded PIP at standard rate at the end of March 2016. I've just recieved a letter from the DWP for her to attend a work focused interview.
My question is does a person in reciept of PIP need to attend a work focused interview?

I my self claim Carer's Allowance and Income Support and this is claimed in my name, the only benefit my wife claims is the PIP. Can you shed some light on the situation for me.

PIP is not a work related benefit so that sounds very odd, work focused interviews are connected with ESA which is a work related benefit. Those interviews mainly happen when a person is awarded ESA in the Work Related Activity Group.

Best thing to do is give DWP a ring and query it

A work focused interview is connected to the WRAG (Working Related Activity Group) of ESA (Employement Support Allowence)

This is NOT connected with PIP. ESA & PIP are different. ESA for being unable to work OR have limited capabilities to work and the PIP for mobility & care needs.

So it seems that your partner is on the work related of ESA and needs to attend the job centre for a work focused interview.

IF partner is in the support group then you need to call to cancel and to state she does not need to attend due to being in that group but if she is in the WRAG group then you do have to attend.

The letter regarding her PIP would not have mentioned anything about ESA as there 2 separate benefits which you can claim together.

I advise you contact the DWP and ask about this confusion.
