Outrage as disability assessment reports are ‘altered’ to refuse benefits support


There is growing evidence to suggest that disability benefit assessment reports are being deliberately “altered” or “tampered” with in order to deny disabled people the benefits support they desperately need, it has been revealed.

Evidence suggests that assessment reports for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) sent to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) are routinely “audited” by DWP officials so that the altered reports bear little or no resemblance to the originals.

Work and Pensions Secretary, Esther McVey MP, is now facing calls to explain the reasons behind these “audits”, after SNP MP Marion Fellows highlighted the case of one of her constituents who was refused PIP based on an audited assessment report by a DWP official.

  1. As I have been saying for some time now these benefits UC, ESA and PIP and the assessments have been created to stop people being awarded benefits, as what other can be reasoned with this claim of altering completed assessments.

    This is disgraceful and shows the DWP can not be trusted and they will not rest until no one is on benefits.
