  1. Good morning, thank you Uncle Bulgaria 67 that was the sort of information that I was looking for. Have a good day regards
  2. Hi I'd like to say thanks for the response I do appreciate it but I do think my question has been misunderstood. My question simply is, does anyone know yes or no if ESA payments started pre 2013 before the new legislation was introduced, any investigation and the results of that investigation are dealt with, with the legislation in place pre 2013. Regards
  3. Good morning thank you again for the responses, I may be clutching at straws but something in my brain(Parkinson's brain) says I read or heard that if a claim was started pre 2013 then any action had to be based on the slightly more civilised regulations. As I said I can live in hope.. regards to all. One Little comment I went to my MP on this situation who in a previous administration who had been a Minister in the DWP and she had to constantly refer to her aide for information and that was hit and miss with a lot of I think.
  4. Hi, please if someone could give me advice I would be entirely grateful, I started receiving ESA contributory in the support group 2012 without going into the details last year after a compliance meeting telephone call I was found to have been overpaid since that date, I am going through the appeal stages at the moment preparing paperwork SSCS1A, I was either informed or read it somewhere in my many searches, THE QUESTION IS IF MY PAYMENTS STARTED PRE 2013 DO THEY COME UNDER A DIFFERENT LEGISLATION IF SO HOW WHAT WHERE, IF NOT THANK YOU FOR ANY INFORMATION, I'm sorry I wasn't shouting just trying to emphasize the issue that I have have a short time to Lodge appeal many thanks again.
  5. Hi ericsbrother I do not think you are rude I always appreciate advice or information and information, politeness and patience, patience I find very important I have requested quotes from three plumbers for repairs. The information gathered on this new company this gentleman has formed the website lists names organizations they have done work for these same organization might not be too pleased to hear how this gentlemen part owner of this company treats a disabled person (use whatever you have). Never lose your temper always be unfailingly polite and listen and check again. So far I have taken Edinburgh Woolen Mills to court fulll refund for two sets of bedding(my wife always buy pairs) with costs etc, Thomas Cook travel company in court seven hundred pounds on a one thousand pound holiday my wife and her friends went on, so please never a victim just assimilate all advice, help and information you can get and good or bad always with a thank you.
  6. Hi ericsbrother, thank you for your reply I understand what you mean about letting this workman back and no after what has happened would not let him return my stipulation " if I can" would be for an independent plumber to do the work. I have checked with CAB re 1982 act and with the other issues, this can be addressed as well. I asked for advice on the Company registration issue because for the moment I do not wish for the company or personal names to be known as yet, CAB would have to react if there was an issue and they know the names, simply put the number they have on their paperwork and website is the registration number for the dissolved company. My name identifies my main disability but added issues of Crohn's disease and cluster headaches meant I had to retire, our savings went into an extension that in the future can be turned into living/sleeping area when I can no longer climb stairs, the work required is simply too costly, this gentleman sat in our home drinking tea and promised he would repair/replace all issues, repaired obviously what he was most worried about then went into silent mode. We still have the the red condemning notice which was issued by a worker from a major energy company. I will use this to get repairs etc done. Regards Parky54
  7. Hi many thanks for your prompt reply like you i think it is more incompetence, especially from someone who can sit in your home say "I don`t know how I missed that " that being a boiler that had been temporarily condemned a red notice issued by a major power company, go around the house saying I will fix everything before going promising to return, then says i will seal around boiler flue before I go for your safety and so that you an use boiler, does so then has secretary send email he REsealed it as goodwill!!!. As you said incompetence. but thank you again
  8. I`m at present trying to pursue a plumber who had his own company he carried out work in October 2012(using 1982 consumer regulations), this company was dissolved 2014, but plumber started new company, new name with a partner, obviously new company are denying all responsibility and have a proper new registration number at companies house but the company number used on their website and paperwork is for the company previously dissolved, can this help me in any way. Work was on an extension for my disability all our savings used, now find downstairs shower room leaks like a sieve, upstairs bath cracked pipe work numerous other things wrong, he had also failed to seal outlet xhaust pipe from combi boiler they installed, boiler condemned until sealed. Plumber came in 9th of April fixed boiler (now saying he resealed it) promised to come 12th april to sort all other issues now denying it, some help /advice would be very grateful.
  9. Hi citizen B and Sangie 595, thank you for your prompt replies, citizen B yes H&S were involved automatically deemed an accident, hospital was different but in all honesty we cannot sue National Health they apologised, but they do a wonderful job under difficult circumstances it would be like taking my, grannie to court. Sangie 595 thank you again, having searched the internet and looked at the Pension Ombudsman website I think it is very difficult for anyone to get ill health retirement even level 3 which states" if unable to work for a year then you get a larger pension and lump sum, ( this figure is more than if my wife is forced into early retirement) you then go for a further medical after that year, if that says you can return to work then your pension is frozen until you retire if they say you are still unable work your pension payments are moved to level 2", not a huge amount but makes a lot of difference to our income. I am hoping out there in the big wide internet there is someone who has been successful, and let us know how they did it. Re part time work my wife started work for the council in 1980 she worked part time 20 hrs a week the ruling then was anyone male or female working less than 40hrs could not join the pension scheme, clever eh you can see immediately which group would be the most discriminated against. 1994 my wife moved to a position when she was able to join the pension scheme and, part timers were allowed to join as more part time jobs crept in, but and this is a big but Local Authority pension schemes have an 85 year rule where age and length of service add up to 85 you get your full pension, if you had joined the scheme before 1998, my wife had but not until 1994 therefore does not qualify under this rule. she is over 55 and qualifies for early retirement but at a much reduced rate. I hope there is someone who can tell me if they were successful with a level 3 claim, as the Union response is basically you have to be dead first!!!.
  10. Hi, I am looking for any help in this situation my wife finds herself in please. First my wife has worked for a local authority for nearly 38yrs, part of this period she was not included in the pension fund due to her working part time therefore she does not qualify under the 85 year rule, she is 58yrs. Last year my wife fell at work breaking her femur requiring a rod implant then she fell in hospital (I know), this time she broke wrist badly requiring an op and manipulation. She has been of work for a year and as cook in a unit will not be able work there for a long time if ever. She applied for ill health retirement at any level as this would be more than the reduced early retirement she would be entitled to. I have had to retire due to health issues and income is very tight. My wife was put through the Occupational Health system and it appears that these registered doctors will not sign of anyone(this is one of my queries has anyone been successful?), she did appeal no success. I have looked at these rules and it appears though it is helpful for a occ. hlth. doctor to sign agreement it is not required as the final decision should be with the Authority and Human Resources, but the Authorities use this lack of signature to consent to any retirement. Union, tried them they say appeal but in my opinion they have been destroyed and struggle to exsist. I would like to know if any has been successful in getting ill health retirement and has anyone any appeal. Many thanks
  11. Hi to all this may come as surprise or not but after contacting FENSA, there response is" they are not responsible for window, door fittings etc when they are fitted to an extension of any kind, only responsible for correct fitting and safety to original layout of building i.e as it was built to plan"!!!!, and it is all self certified they do not have inspectors of their own but employ as required. My ribs have cracked:x thanks again for replies
  12. Hi and thank you for replies sorry about delay in reply, builder did look say`s doors will have to be removed and runners replaced(they are 3 large patio French window doors) expensive, builder was given cash to buy them as part of the extension build, fensa do not appear to be interested there duty appears to be safety. many thanks
  13. Please help through a builder carrying out an extension we purchased on his recommendation French window door approx. £4000, 2 years ago, we gave him the money to purchase these, 3 weeks ago doors came of their runners we tried to contact company they had closed, builder says it is not his responsibility and that's that, double glazing company installed door/windows. Is this true? is there anything we can do or approach, any advice greatly appreciated as I am severely disabled and have limited income.
