DWP

In the UK, the DWP is the largest governing body. It is responsible for benefits, welfare, and pensions throughout the UK. Created in 2001, the DWP is also responsible for all Job Centres and is currently headed by Damien Green. The department receives around £150 billion each year to put towards its services. If you would like more information on the DWP in general, or about specific services, call and we will connect you through to a member of staff in the Head Office who can help you with your query. The DWP is funded by the European Social Fund. Once England leaves the European Union, it is unsure if the funding will be provided solely by the UK government.

Customer Services

You may need to contact the DWP customer services to make a complaint about a member of staff, or about your previous experience with the DWP, if you have received the wrong amount of money from the DWP and need to register this with a member of staff, to find out more about their services, if you wish to make changes to your current pension or to find out where your local Job Centre is. For answers to all of these questions please call the number.

State Pension

When you reach pension age, you will not automatically receive the state pension from the government. 4 months before you reach state pension age, you will receive a letter telling you how to claim the State Pension. There are 4 ways to claim the state pension; online, over the phone on the helpline, or downloading your pension form and sending it to your local pensions office. If you are claiming from abroad, you can still claim for a state pension through the Channel Islands. For more information on this process, call the number.

Appeals

You can appeal against a decision made by the DWP at an independent tribunal. However, before you do so, you must ask the DWP to reconsider their decision. Once they have done so, and have come to the same conclusion, only then can you appeal. You must appeal within one month of their reconsideration, and have a representative who can speak on your behalf. For more information on this, call their number.
