The DWP announced on 6th July 2020:
• Face-to-face assessments to remain suspended, but kept under review
• Some review and reassessment activity to gradually resume from July 2020 for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
• People are encouraged not to delay making claims as all benefits remain open and telephone and paper based assessments are in place where appropriate.
This temporary suspension, initially brought in for three months to protect people from unnecessary risk of coronavirus at the outset of the pandemic, will remain in place following a consideration of the latest public health guidance. date
