That support can include help with filling in the claim form or the questionnaire and additional protections for failing to return the questionnaire or for failing to attend a face-to-face assessment.</p><p> </p><p>We recognise that attending any face-to-face assessment can be a stressful experience for some people, which is why we do not carry out face-to-face consultations where there is enough existing evidence to determine benefit entitlement. Furthermore, where a face-to-face consultation is required, we and our Assessment Providers encourage claimants to bring another person with them to consultations where they would find this helpful, for example, to reassure them or to help them during the consultation. The person chosen is at the discretion of the claimant and might be, but is not limited to, a parent, family member, friend, carer, or advocate.</p><p><br></p>
