Mum of nine took her own life ‘because DWP stopped her benefits in 2017

Post by Admin on Wed Apr 04, 2018 3:36 pm

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is facing a legal investigation after a mum of nine took her own life “because the DWP stopped her benefits”, in yet another benefits related suicide case.

Jodey Whiting, who suffered with severely disabling medical conditions, killed herself in February 2017, just a few days after cruel benefit bosses stopped her disability benefit payments after she failed to attend a medical assessment (Work Capability Assessment).

However, her family claims that she never received the appointment letter and is blaming the Government for her suicide.

Jodey had been instructed to attend a health assessment on January 16 last year, but missed the mandatory meeting whilst being in hospital and knew nothing about the appointment.

The ICE will look at five key parts of the case against the DWP:
