Hi lily,

I'm afraid this seems to be happening a lot at the moment. It seems to be another way to 'rattle the cages' of claimants and upset them! Most people report that the interviews are quickly and easily finished.

You have most likely been picked at random, but it is possible that you have been reported t the fraud line or that something on your claim has been flagged by the DWP.

What they will ask will depend on the nature of the interview, most likely they will ask you about your income and savings.
