A self-assessment is a questionnaire that you fill out to explain the sort of work you think you can do now or in the future, and what support you might need to find and stay in work. We'll let you know if you need to complete one.
Who needs to complete a Self-Assessment
You may need to complete a Self-Assessment if you:
- have a health condition or disability that affects your ability to work
- need support or services to help you prepare for, find and stay in work.
You won’t need to complete a Self-Assessment if you’ve got either:
- a job to return to within 13 weeks of when you applied for a benefit
- a medical certificate or other appropriate assessments which tells us that you:
- are more than 27 weeks pregnant
- are totally blind
- have a terminal illness
- have a severe intellectual or cognitive impairment
- have a condition which means you can no longer work and it’s unlikely that this will change.
