I've been receiving incapacity benefit for 2 years and never had to go for an assessment - I got a phone at 11.30 am yesterday saying I would have to attend one in the city centre, I'm now a mess!! I don't leave the house without my husband because I have terrible panic attacks and migraines when I even think of it. They told me if I couldn't go then I would have to get a letter from my doctor and a home visit would be arranged. Can anyone tell me what happens at these assessments and do you think it would be better if my husband got a day off work and went with me or should I get a home visit? I didn't sleep a wink last night worrying about this and I've not even got a date yet.
