star this property answer text <p><strong> </strong></p><p>Any claimant who is required to attend an Employment and Support Allowance or Personal Independent Payment assessment will be reimbursed for any reasonable travel costs associated with attending the assessment. The Department and its assessment providers do not pay travel costs in advance and we have no plans to change the current policy which is consistent with other areas of Government such as the NHS Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme.</p><p> </p><p>All claimants who are required to attend an assessment are advised in their appointment letter to contact the relevant provider if they have any difficulty in attending the assessment. Where such situations arise, the Department expects the assessment providers to explore all possible options to ensure that an assessment can be conducted. For example, this may include changing the location of an assessment or undertaking a home visit where a person’s health condition indicates that either they cannot travel to an assessment, or where travel would require high levels of support or cause significant distress.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Bereavement Support Payment is intended to help people with the additional costs in the acute period immediately following a bereavement, rather than providing an income replacement. Income-related benefits are more suited for longer-term assistance with everyday living expenses. Unlike the suite of bereavement benefits it replaced, Bereavement Support Payment is paid in addition to any other benefits the recipient is entitled to, thus helping those on the lowest incomes the most.</p><p> </p> more like this
