Medical certificate update March 2021

Restarting medical certificates for Disability Allowance patients 

We’re writing to let you know the Ministry of Social Development is reinstating Disability Allowance reviews from 23 February 2021.
This means Work and Income clients who are receiving the Disability Allowance and have new or increased costs may be coming to GPs and health professionals to get an updated Disability Allowance Medical Certificate. You’ll recall we paused this requirement due to COVID-19.

We’ll be in touch with you again in the months ahead for any other changes.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
