Visit re DLA- should I be worried?

Had a letter last month to say that as DS is almost 16 would he be taking over his money? Contacted a friend in a similar position & she advised me to reply no.

Come home today to a letter from the local DWP saying they want to visit "both of us" to "complete the appropriate paperwork". Is this a euphemism for "we don't believe you should be claiming", or am I worrying about nothing?

He may be nearly 16 but he isn't legal school-leaving age until 2006.

Any thoughts?

Sorry T, I really don't know is my answer! Just didn't want you to not get any responses. So this is a BUMP in disguise.

its probably just to get your ds to sign to say he agrees to you looking after his cash.
