My point is if its all done randomly by computer then they can block certsin accounts from being checked very easily. If its done by a person then they are clearly not reading the notes.
Stress brings the seizures on so I would like to thank the department in advance
Something has happened to bring you and your wife to their attention. It could be that someone has maliciously reported that your wife is not as ill as she says or not ill at all. Or that she is now working or you are working or that you’ve come into some money.
The Dept have to act on these reports. As others here are saying, you are on a means tested payment so they have the right and a duty to review your entitlement if they think they need to.
The important thing is to respond as quickly as you can and send them whatever they require so as to avoid getting cut off.
If you go to your local CIC they will help you to deal with it and you could ask them to write a letter which will be from you explaining how stressful you find all this and how your circumstances haven’t changed in recent years.
