The RNID casework team is to cease operating from 23 May, Benefits and Work can reveal.

As disclosed in previous articles, RNID decided to axe their casework team because the service is not ‘ inline with its new strategic direction’.  (See: RNID confirms welfare rights team to be axed)

 With the proposed introduction of a new ‘simplified’ work capability assessment for employment and support allowance which will award zero points for deafness to claimants who can read, the need for a specialist service is likely to be even greater in the future.

Sadly, there will no longer be anyone to meet that need.
