  1. Yea, they know at head office that I work casually and where....so where do I go from here? Yea, they know at head office that I work casually and where....so where do I go from here? I can't get through to them on phone ���� Been on phone for 20+ mins :/ will morning at 8am be to short notice?
  2. I have an appointment tomorrow morning at 9am,(universal credit) which I had changed to because my last one was cancelled for some reason. I do casual work here and there I got a text a few mins ago reminding me that I have training (counter terrorism training) at 9:30am - noon at my casual job, I completely forgot but if I phone up UC now they may refuse or sanction me. Should I call up now or in morning?
  3. (For someone else) I started claiming universal credit a few mnonths ago after being on JSA. The advisor do you have any health problems? I said yes (alcohol problem) so she asked me to put a sick note in and I handed it in (3 months ago) and I havnt heard anything back, any advice on where to go from here? Thanks
  4. Iv been on universal credit for a few months and I have mental problems, like anxiety and depression (also an eating disorder) and struggle to go outdoors (it heavily affects me with interviews) ( i do casual work here and ther like a few hours, but they take an absolute chunk out of it so hardly any point signing on in the first place) so I was wondering at my doctors appointment I have next week could I get a sick note so I could go on that for 3 months? Or is it very difficult? Just wanted advice : )
  5. Iv signed on for 6 months now and I had a job for 4 years and attended ingeus in 2011-2012 (they didn't get me that job or help with it) and is it still going in Liverpool city centre does anyone know?
  6. I gif my payment today which was £36 (because I work as a football steward in the season which ended May 8th for me, and I received £237 which £178 was to pay rent/Bills etc, and now Iv only £36 to last me month with no work with the football being finished till August) most of my payment was taken off me as a result, I have rent and interview for job coming up and £36 isn't going to last me till July 13th, my last payment from the football work was 22nd may (but as I said £178 of £237 of it was bills/rent) if I call up would I be able to get a loan? Also as I said my interview next week will be tough to support as a result. Any advice appreciated thanks
  7. With my last letter saying from the 7th April to 8th may for my mid May Payment, will this go from the 9th of May onwards? And Iv had no work pay since mid May so I'll get like £40 to last me a month? Lol
  8. Yes it's universal credit, will the £111 allowance not apply here? I havnt received anything since 20th may
  9. Yea it's universal credit (the work is a steward job at the football ground, so it's not even 16 hours a month)
  10. I work as a casual worker at the football match (no work at moment obviously) in mid May I got a letter saying my take home pay was X amount and on the letter dated 8th may it said I'm allowed to earn £111 then 0.65p off every pound is taken off after that (fair enough) it was for the period of worked between 7th April and 8th may, but I read the £111 allowance is no longer valid from April 2016 and so why did it not affect me then? And this month if earned but not since the 15th may then the 20th may (which I explained to them in the phone was to all be paid for bills) so tomorrow when i get paid will it not be the £111 allowance that affects it? I'm confused Thanks in advance for help
  11. I get paid universal credit tomorrow and today received a letter that £177 was deducted because it says I had £383 take-home pay. I work as a steward at a football ground and I have only received £40-80 off that in the month 7th April to 6th may stated on the letter it applies, (it said nothing about the work I do as I havnt declared itt) just can't see where they're getting £383 from, what can I do? Any advice appreciated
  12. I started claiming in December and from 23-12-15 I wa given an 82 sanction (dismissal from work) and 2 weeks ago I had a back to work appointment but couldn't attend due to me having a doctors appointment at the roughly same time. I called up universal credit and there was a problem getting me a new appointment so they said my local job centre would call me with s new app intent which they didn't (didn't bother me I understand they're busy) I didn't get a call so called up this morning and was given a new appointment for this Thursday morning with the same advisor that spoke to me like **** previous appointment I attended (it's on another thread I posted about the advisor speaking to me like ****) and it clashes with something personal (family) and + I do t want to attend with her again (he said on the phone only sh is available. So my question is with me already being sanctioned unroll pretty much April could I still cancel this on q phone call on the morning before it? I'm interested in getting back in to work but I am not sitting in front of her again, I would rather wait for my usual advisor who he isn't available for a few weeks I was told, would be cancelling Thursday affect my sanction further or is it ov been sanctioned anyway so it would be ok? Thanks in advance : )
  13. How do I open original post up? And I asked for a reconsider of the the sanction and was knocked back, I was sacked for gross misconduct (summary dismissal) and Iv been told by the CAB it was the right decision in all fairness
  14. Yes I got a hardship, and Iv never met someone like this at a job centre before, even before I got my last job 4 years ago they were all nice people (suppose there is a first time for everything) even the WP back in the day were like she was yesterday
