Reassessment of incapacity benefits for people living outside the UK

March 20, 2012

We have been receiving queries from members who are living outside the UK and claiming incapacity benefit (ICB) in relation to whether they will also be involved in a medical reassessment process for eligibility for employment and support allowance (ESA).

Dr Shepherd has raised this with his contacts at the DWP and has now received the following information.

NB: There is a discussion on this subject currently taking place on our Facebook page.
