Has anybody else been asked to return to the UK to claim invalidity benefits?
Prior to coming to Belgium I lived, worked and paid taxes in the UK for about 8 years and I've been residing, working and paying taxes in Belgium for more than 20 years. Due to bad health I'm no longer able to work and I'm claiming invalidity benefits. I'm not able to travel. Recently I got a letter from my mutelle (Bond Moyson) informing me that I may have to return to the UK to have a medical examination. Has this happened to anybody else? If yes, does anybody know what the process and procedure is, how long it takes and who pays all the costs? Do I need to get another medical letter from another Belgian medical doctor to say I cannot travel? It would be very costly and make my medical condition even worse, so can't the doctors here just electronically send all my Belgian medical documents to the UK for a medical doctor to examine?
