Detail

The DWP Personal information charter explains where to send your request and when you can expect a reply.

You can fill in the forms on this page in Word and most similar tools.

Asking for information on behalf of someone else

If you are asking for information on behalf of someone else, you must provide their written, signed consent using the DWP consent form, unless you are an official appointee or have Power of Attorney for that person.

You can ask for information on behalf of someone else if:

  • you provide their written, signed consent using the DWP consent form, or
  • you are an official appointee or have Power of Attorney for that person

This includes requests from solicitors for information about a customer – for example, in personal injury cases.

The person whose information you are asking for must complete Part E of the form. We will not accept any other form of consent.
