The only benefits that has Enhanced is PIP Disability benefit
Normally you do have to attend an assessment and it's non means tested, but it's nothing to do with Unemployment
If it's to do with being unfit for work, then it's Employment and Support Allowance, which can have an Enhanced disability premium and can be means tested, depending whether you are on Contributions based, or Income based
Also, a pension can affect the Contributions based
Hope that helps
