    Reviewing benefits and circumstances Interview 9th Jun 17 at 10:49 AM
    Hey everyone,

    I currently claim DLA and carers allowance for my son. These are the only benefits we receive and Ive had a letter saying I need to attend an interview because they are reviewing my benefits and circumstances.
    Does anyone have any experience of this? I am bricking it, worrying Ive done something wrong not had anything like this before.

    Any advice on what to expect?

    I have a gift for enraging people, but if I ever bore you it'll be with a knife Louise Brooks

    Sorry that you are feeling uneasy.

    If you had done something wrong then the DWP would be inviting you for an interview under caution.

    If you are just being called in then it is nothing to worry about.

    There can be a variety of reasons for people being called in but I prefer not to speculate.
