    Local compliance interview dla 25th Jan 18 at 8:12 PM
    Hi I wonder if anybody can help me. Im a foster carer for the local authority but I am in receipt of dla, and my wife receives income support so we called the dla and income support when me and my wife started fostering and they said if your circumstances and income haven't changed as it's local authority fostering with nil profit we don't need to do anything but then today I received a letter for a local compliance telephone interview, and when I spoke to the compliance officer he said it's for dla benefit fraud, somebody has reported you, but then I read online as it's a telephone interview it's probably because they've noticed income coming into your bank account and you've not notified them although they told us we didn't need to?? Very panicked and on edge now!! Has anybody got experience of a local compliance interview and what it's actually about as we're now worried about me losing my motability car!!

    I wouldn't worry, my ex once reported me for working while on DLA. The DWP sent a letter and I called to ask why I was being asked to go for an interview, the woman on the phone said it was to do with not declaring that I worked when on DLA, I laughed and said "I did declare it and the DWP pay for my taxis to and from work through the access to work scheme, anyway I can't make next Thursday because I'm working but I'm happy to meet with you to sort this out". I got told not to worry about it and I've never heard from them since, that was about 10 years ago.
