DWP: Confidential Mail

This is VERY useful information!!

Same Difference

Readers, I don’t know how many of you remember this story from 2012 about the Royal Mail opening DWP letters.

However, reader Rob McDowall has just shared something very useful on Facebook:


If you are sending letters, claim forms, evidence and reports to the DWP for disability and employment and support allowance benefits; the DWP have a contract which allows Royal Mail to open and sort letters on their behalf.

If you do not wish the Royal Mail to open your DWP confidential letters, write PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL or PRIVATE ADDRESSEE ONLY on the outside of envelope.

The Royal Mail will not open any such labelled mail and will instead forward it on to the relevant DWP office for opening.
