About Me


  1. Hi All, I'm still waiting for my claim form to come through, should I be concerned that it hasn't arrived yet or are others still waiting? I did call them and update my address details over a month ago, so there should be no reason why it shouldn't arrive. Thanks, Andy

  4. Hi all, sorry for the formal layout of my question but I think it best gives the details. 6 weeks ago my wife developed a stiff leg and before the end of the day had to be brought home from school (a teacher)unable to walk. Doctor diagnosed sciatica and prescribed tablets. (these have been increased weekly as there has been increased pain and unable to sleep at nights) Also the foot had dropped in this time and a hired wheelchair is now used for mobility. We waited 4 weeks to see a consultant. Consultant diagnosed the drop foot and pain as being related to a disc operation approx 15 year
  5. I reckon the companies will change their options around - Post Office Telecom had a message on their automated system which advised that the options had been changed ! So I think perhaps these companies wont like this guy's idea
  6. Last Sept I was taken off esa, I have been waiting for ATOS to assess. I call ATOS every day and they fob me off, either there waiting for my GP's reply or my response to a fictional question they never sent, however I have received nothing from ATOS, they are so rude, one time I asked how long will it take for them to see me, how long is a piece of string was their answer. I have been in touch with Citizens Advice and my MP as my housing benefit stopped. Even my MP can't hurry ATOS along he was told I am stuck in the system, the situation is dire, I am facing eviction. What else can I do.
  7. I am currently claiming IB JSA jointly with my partner. My partner is the principal claimant. We have recently applied for mortgage interest relief in relation to my flat having been on benefits for more than 12 weeks. It looks like I may be separating from my partner. As such I'm trying to find out if we separate and I go on to income support (we have a daughter aged 1) whether I would need to wait another 12 weeks as I'm a new claimant or whether the MIR payments could continue albeit in my sole name? Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.
  8. Hi Let's say we are getting married in 3 weeks. My Fiancee and I have paid in full for and had an initial try on, of the wedding dress and was waiting till this weekend for a final fitting When..... we have just found out that the retailer (a newish company, less than a year old) have had some problems between the business owners. One of the owners is contactable but is saying she can't help as she is no longer involved, not allowed to, the company is trading but is aware of contact issues. The other is completely un-contactable, by phone, email, mobile so far. Our latest visit t
  9. hi everyone I need some advice over a parking charge notice i received in the post, its from a company called parkdirectuk asking for £100 to be paid because apparently we were stopping or waiting on private land where stopping or waiting restrictions are in force, now from the pictures they sent the car is parked on double yellow lines not in a bay or anything like that even though i think it was still in the car park, if the car was parked on the yellow lines surely the company has no right to issue me with a "fine" ? i dont really know how to deal with this, a
  10. I am seeking advice regarding my esa payment. I returned all the relevant forms and evidence required by the office two weeks ago and on phoning this morning have been told that my case is now being processed by the emergency processing team and will be processed in three working days. My ssp ran out on 16 October when I applied for esa because I have a medical certificate until February 2013. I have had no income since my last ssp payment and am now desperate. What is the emergency processing? does it mean they will send me a payment? I am entitled to my state pension from March 2013

    NHS waiting times

    Is there any site that actually publishes waiting times? I have seen reports about national standerd and what to do if its broken, but I want to know just how long I am going to be kept waiting for an operation that my surgeon has classed as urgent, already waited 8 weeks now and still no sign of a date for the op. Have tried phoning the surgeons secretary and she was most unhelpful, her words were 'you will just have to wait as he is very busy!', I mentioned i had already had my pre- op check and in another week it will have to be redone as it will be out of time, her answer was 'well w

  13. Morning Guys, Been looking through the forums recently and have been working on claiming back money from Barclay Card. My mother has had a Barclays Credit Card for some time now and unfortunatly got behind with the payments. Barclaycard contacted Mum and arranged a Payment plan, and they asked how come Mum had fallen behind. Mum explained that both herself and Dad had been ill, Mum had an Eye operation and Dad had a knee replacement. The lady on the phone asked Mum "Why didnt you use the PPI you have on your account?" Mum wasnt aware of the fact that she had PPI since ta
  14. I was offered my PPI refund of £371 in August 2011. However, after a million phone calls, involving the FOS - who told me they too are in a queue waiting for a response from Lloyds - a letter from me complaining about the dissatisifaction at the way they have handled the pay out, I am still left with no refund 10 months later. This is not a large amount is it????? I even got a really nice woman from my local Loyds TSB branch to try and help me - she too hit a brick wall. They lied to her and said they sent me a cheque out last October. I asked how they
  15. HI everyone I've got a parking notice from a ANPR camera on a private car park - they're asking for £90 (£75 if paid by the 25th). They have a photo of my car entering and leaving with a gap of 43 minutes between. I've read about the "ignore everything from PCNs" concept, but may have a case for appealing, so thought I'd run it past you before saying anything. Here's what happened. I went to pick up a model (I'm a photographer) from some flats where he lives He wasn't ready - so I pulled up in the car park at the front We went to the security guard's desk to as
