  5. Thanks Erica Yes, it's contrib based esa. She gets a pension of £9441. Because the pension affects the esa payable (the reduction) she was trying to work out how much esa she'd be left with. Based on that she can then decide whether it's worth the effort claiming it.
  6. Actually, thinking about it, that calculator cannot be right. My mum lives with her partner, he earns approx 10K from own company (him & 3 others - mix divs & salary). Mum has a property she rents out - I don't know how 'benefits' deal with this, but tax return for last year and next tax year are a loss (it was refurbished) so per returns was a loss & now rented again will gradually over two years return to a profit situation. To be on the safe side, I put in the calculator : Mum - £9441 pension Mum - £20000 property income (even though it's in loss, but actual cash hopefully in 2010/2011) Partner - £10000 Assets - £100,000 I focused on the esa number of £17.17 p.w. but it also said they were entitled to working tax credit - that cannot be right surely ??? So I put income of 40K for a 'couple' (even though I'm not sure what property income number was right ie loss or cash) and it says they should get working tax credit ?
  7. Thanks Paul It says £ 17.17 p.w. I'll let her know - up to mum whether the aggro of claiming is worth it.
  8. Hello I wonder if anyone can help with a calculation please ? My mother is entitled to receive esa. She was medically retired from work on 31/03/10 and receives an early retirement pension of £ 9441.00 p.a. from 01/04/10. Basically this question is whether it's worth her claiming esa? She went via the CAB to a benefits advisor - they told her the first £85 p.w. is disregarded, after that a % is deducted from the esa benefit. The advisor was going to work out the numbers for her but has been off sick, nobody else there can help. She's rung various government helpline numbers but they say make the claim and see. Atm she's awaiting an operation date (cancer) and tbh doesn't want to make a claim/do paperwork/have appointments/assessments if it's all a waste of time ie if the pension means she'd get sod all. For that reason she hasn't even made a claim (was waiting for sick advisor to get back to her). If anyone here could actually do the 'sums' - esa claim with £9441.00 p.a. pension, we would both be very grateful. Many Thanks
  9. Thank you all Just spoke to O/H on phone again. He got a copy of the letter SCM sent the Court and the amount they've said they've sent by cheque is about right. Interest calculated up to yesterday ! So if anyone's freaking out, like I was ............. they really do leave it to the VERY LAST MINUTE POSSIBLE . If Mods etc want to transfer this to the 'won' section....... I'll post back on Monday with the case number. O/H has the file and we're away this weekend. Btw charges were £ 1,692 interest £ 308 & court/AQ fees £ 220 : Total £ 2,220.
  10. Just had a phone call from O/H - we've won ( which I am pleased about despite .................) : He went to Court today obviously ........ he was up half the night reading/checking the paperwork .......... other side didn't turn up ...... was told the other side had sent a letter to him plus cheque, plus letter to Court saying they were settling ..... all correspondence dated YESTERDAY. Sorry for the bad language but they are W*****S. Anyway we won, which is the main thing. Now it's a metter of waiting for the cheque, what's the betting it's for the right amount ie includes correct interest and AQ fee ? Thanks for all the support guys - seems like they're not ready for that test case yet !!
  11. Hey lancs You still drunk after yesterday's result ? west
  12. christina Yes, I was delighted for lancsman. Same thing appears to have happened with vikkijarda. Why are they playing such silly games ?? No O/H won't call them. It's his case so his call. He didn't say but I think he got treated like something that gets stuck on your shoe when he phoned them ..... so he's gone all 'guns blazing' now. Putting together my files ready for tomorrow. :!:
  13. hi christina Well there's no bank account to do a last-minute bung in to. They haven't got his phone no/wouldn't take his calls. With what I've read their admin leaves a lot to be desired so the chances of getting a cheque on the doorstep ( day before court ) would be brilliant brinkmanship so .... I think not ! We're resigned to going to Court tomorrow. There are then 4 possible outcomes - 1) They don't turn up 2) They settle before case heard 3) They ask for an adjournement 4) The case is heard and decided. Whatever happens, happens.
  14. Hi lancsman Still doing homework here. You know that letter you sent to the ice cream sellers that said the following : 'I have a list of 17 cases which have been started against Lloyds bank -- including case numbers, all of which have been settled by the bank. In fact I have a list of nearly 300 cases -- including case numbers, which have been brought against UK high street banks this year and which have all been settled by the banks' If you really have this info/case no's - could I get it from you ? Cheers
