TOPIC: When does the DWP first get to see your IB50?

When does the DWP first get to see your IB50? 8 years 7 months ago #17718

  • joecr
Can anyone please tell me when the decision maker from the DWP first gets to see your completed IB50 questionaire? Does he receive a copy from Atos as soon as they receive it, or does the DWP decision maker only get to see it after the medical, if Atos decide a medical is required?
Thanks, Joe.

As the IB50 is issued by Atos and has to be returned to them, it is likely that the decision maker will first have sight of it when a decision on entitlement is required, which would be after the medical or following medical scrutiny advice from Atos, if a medical is not required.
