Over the past year, the PIP and work capability assessments for ESA and UC have been taking place over the phone.
Guidance has been updated on rolling face-to-face assessments out once again. These assessments affect people claiming PIP or having a work capability assessment (WCA) for ESA or Universal credit.
The assessor will be wearing a face covering and will observe at a 2 meter distance. They will not and should not come any closer than this and will not come into physical contact with you.
