  1. If you dont send in the information they will not pay the last payment. Seems unfair but they are checking entitlement amd confirming the date you started work.
  2. If you can prove you informed ESA that you were in receipt of a student loan, then the overpayment is the departments fault and may be classed as an offical error even though you want to pay the money back.
  3. It looks like they are trying to help you. You stillmay be entitled to housing benefit even though you are working, every little helps. If you started work the 30th April you may not even get paid to the end of this month so dont shoot yourself in the foot. If you havent got any payslips yet ring up and explain this to them. You may get housing benefit for this month as income cant be taken into account until you receive it.
  4. If you are not entitled to SSP then you will be able to claim I.S as a Lone Parent, you could have made a claim a month ago while on unpaid leave. If you do make a claim ask for backdating it may be worth it. Dont struggle on ctc and chb you are entitled.
  5. Did you have a change of address, have you moved ? If so you should have completed a proforma over the phone, this will then be emailed to the section for updating. If the call was after three oclock then the payment if its made by FEP, same day banking will be in Monday morning. If they have put it in to account as normal and not a FEP it will take three working days. If this is the case and its not in Monday, ring again they can recall the payment and issue it as a FEP. You should get it that day, Ask for a call back to confirm You are entitled to receive the benefit the day its due.
  6. Is there a telephone number on the letter that you have received. If there is it may be worth a call to see if they will give you any indication to what this is all about. If you explain the effect this is having on you they may give you a clue. I cant see it being about selling things on Ebay unless you have sold loads. If your ex has give them information they would just not go on his say so, they would have to have evidence to support the accusations. Is it a joint interview by the L.A and Inland Revenue Here is a link http://static.advicenow.org.uk/files/IUC_Final-1571.pdf
  7. Hope more people can claim Erika as usual spot on, glad she is on your side
  8. Tiger is right just make a new claim to IS for you and your partner
  9. My new line manager worked at Woolworths she is useless the Wonder of Woolies not. She got the job dont know why. But she is in place and nobody is admitting responsibility Happy Days not
  10. If they do a scan and the addresses classes, yes they could think you are a couple, and start a fraud case. I am not trying to scare you but be warned just check out your local HB site and put in your figures and check out housing benefit I wish you well and hope everything work out for you
  11. If he has registered at your address even though it is a care off address, this will show on the central computer and may result in a match being raised Its because all departments use the same data It could effect your Income Support claim even if he doesnt move in
  12. You will get paid IS as soon as IB have accepted your appeal not the same as receiving it, but there should be no problem You will get IS on the reduced rate from the day after you were last paid as long as it was received in the calendar month from when you failed your PCA or medical
  13. to try to work out what the random money is this is how it works, for benefit purposes take the last two numbers of your national insurance number, please keep it to yourself then when you have these ignore the letter 1-20 payday monday 21 -40 tuesday 41-60 wednesday 61-80 thursday 81-100 Fridays so if end in 59 you wll be a wednesday now you are paid fortnightly in arrears and have to serve three waiting days usually so date of claim 8th paid from 11 september, med cert ran out 23rd September they will not have paid you at first past that date of the first med cert and untill they have the new cert they wont pay you again untill their system is updated a letter should have been sent out with the payment giving you a full benefit breakdown It looks like three days benefit may have been paid to you As Erica has said give them another ring and ask when are they going to update the system and pay you as you must be due again by now, at least two weeks if you have put in your cert and there are no gaps.
  14. stick to what you have said to them at the first interview its the truth, I know its hard but they are only doing their job and someone has to do it. and at least you will not be on your own this time he/she will be on your side and will make sure it goes as well as it can dont worry just get it done and then it will be over then you can decide what to do take care
  15. this should help you with any questions on benefits you may be entitled to Benefits for non-UK nationals : Directgov - Money, tax and benefits If you did qualify for JSA here its £64.50 and our minimum wage is £5.80 an hour and you will need one of these 1. Applying for a National Insurance
  16. Kaytie its must be horrible for you at the moment but its nearly over now have a read of this http://static.advicenow.org.uk/files/IUC_Final-1571.pdf after the interview they will have to decide if they have a case of living together and a decasion maker will do that for them then they will inform you of the decision but you can appeal against that decision if its wrong and I have seen lots of people win these appeals recently and get it overturned
  17. First of all you have to decide if your partner is fit for work. and by the sounds of it he isnt. The doctor not speaking much English unbeleivably bad If he was fit for work then he would have to claim JSA for you both. You need to phone DWP and tell them that you want to appeal against the decision on his Incapacity Benefit medical They will send you a form called a GL24 to complete. fill it in with as much detail as you can Whilst his appeal is being heard then you can claim I.S again on hardship rate, this is not much about £88.50 for a couple but you will get full housing benefit again If you do get your student grant then you have to inform I.S as its treated as an Income Do you receive any other benefits ?
  18. Lisa, please dont worry just go and tell them truth just as you have described in your post to be classed as living together you must fall in to one of these catergories The Decision Makers Guide Volume 3 chapter 11 sets out the tests the DM must use to consider the matter. 11047 To be considered as LTAHAW the couple must be members of the same household. Being members of the same household means that 1. they live as members of the same household, flat, apartment, caravan or other dwelling place and neither normally live in another household and 2. they both live there regularly, apart from absences necessary for employment, to visit relatives, etc Household and home are not the same. This particularly applies where married couples separate and refuse to leave the matrimonial home. 1 R(SB) 4/83 Example An ex-married couple may still live in the same house. One partner is reluctant to leave, until a satisfactory financial agreement has been reached with the other partner. 11048 The fact that a couple are members of the same household does not mean that they are LTAHAW. The DM should consider 1. what caused the couple to live together and 2. the facts and circumstances that exist while they are living together1. A relationship may resemble LTAHAW but consideration of its origins may show it to be something quite different. Your expartner lives wth his mother and has his things there so hopefully things should be ok and he only stays to help you with the children
  19. sorry to hear how slowly things are going Unfortunatley your Income Support claim cannot be processed untill a decision has been made on your hab res test. and of course your Housing Benefit depends on this decision as well The decision is made in Wick in respect of your Hab Res test. I would give IS another ring and explain things again to them. Ask for Wicks number and see if you can chase it yourself These things can take a while but yours seems to be taking a bit to long hope this helps
  20. Very interesting have been here once and loved it got a great bargain on a tele Can you join if you work for DWP does anyone know
  21. Will do soon I find out am surprised on how many people can still claim it, think they underestimated that one
  22. see what they say hopefully you will get some answers and arrears
  23. I am intrigued to know myself now, I will enquiry tomorrow to see why with IB and where they isolated cases, and how could it have happened,
