Hi,

One of the problems of ringing the DWP is that your call can be answered at one of the many Customer Contact Centres throughout the UK. Depending on current call volume depends which centre your call gets routed to. Hence trying to track down the same person you spoke to over the phone is almost impossible unless you have the persons name and know where they are based. Hence we usually advise contact in writing by recorded delivery so you have an audit trail of when/where things were sent.

If your need for the form is urgent, would your local jobcentre be able to help provide you with one and fax it from there?

Thank you pete
can you shed any light on the following, i got this from the government website

•work for less than 16 hours a week, on average, and earn up to £97.50 a week for as long as your illness or disability is considered so severe that you are meeting the threshold of incapacity without having a medical assessment

am i right in thinking you can still get incapacity and earn and go beyond the 52 weeks rule indefinately ?
