TOPIC: Is it Legal? PIP

Is it Legal? PIP 2 months 1 week ago #227786

Reference PIP

Is a claimant "obliged" to let DWP : regardless , if they call unannounced in to one's own residence ?
Is it legal?
Or if case again as above happened : can one say I would like an arranged appointment at their DWP's office if talking about PIP DLA?
Thanks 14 3 2019.

Apples 6 Not very techy to see when rep;ies come up thank you
Obviously I appreciate if 1 has requested a "dome visit" and they arrive at the said date arranged then it is different as one has agreed

The DWP do have some rights of entry but I would not expect any of them to apply to a claimant receiving Social Security benefits under normal circumstances, they are outlined in the following

If the DWP did turn up unannounced then you can refuse entry and ask them to make mutually agreeable appointment to see you.
