Dear DWP Adelphi Freedom-of-Information-Request,
I wish further clarity please on your explanation,e.g. any persons claiming disability allowance would expect their records to be retained for 14 months after the END of a claim.
In essence, a lifetime claimaint would have lifelong record retained at the DWP?

Yours sincerely,

alan m dransfield

This is not true, they keep this information for much longer, i found this out recently when they went back nearly 10 years ago with information on me. Clearly they are breaching their own systems guidelines if this happens.
