If a claimant requests a copy of their assessment report they are entitled to receive it. Where an assessment report has been reviewed or reworked by DWP the claimant will receive copies of both the original and audited versions. Please note, the audited version of an assessment report is different from the Auditor's Report produced by the Department about the Assessment Provider. Claimants are not entitled to see Auditor's Reports.
