You're entitled to free NHS dental treatment if you or your spouse (including civil partner) receive:
Hi I'm claiming universal credit/carers element I've got a first dental assessment in 2 weeks will I get free treatment?
"This must not be allowed to happen"
The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has published a contract notice announcing its plans for a £3.1billion revamp of heath checks for Personal Independence Payments (PIP) and other benefits.
PIP is not ESA or even UC, having one assessment for those benefits is morally wrong to treat them as ONE size fits all with that one assessment.
Latest update 9th May 2019
The government has confirmed that it is pushing ahead with plans to test how it might be able to merge two disability benefit assessments into one, despite comments from a minister that appeared to suggest that no such plans were being discussed.
Does this apply as I live in Wales?

I receive a carers element
I don't have to pay for Dental Treatment, because I am out of work & on ESA & PIP. All I have to do is show my dentist receptionist a DWP letter proving my claim & sign a sheet for clarification.
