Hi everyone! I've been unemployed for a few years, and a few months back the DWP ( Ramsgate Benefit Integrity Centre) sent me a a large booklet to fill out, stating my finances, shares etc. Effectively, it was like a new claim form and I filled it out the same as I had done a few years ago. I ended up getting my benefits reduced because my shares, which I've previously declared, have gone up in value, and I received a letter from them confirming I would be deducted so much. So everything seemed sorted etc, or so I thought... A few weeks later, I received a letter from Ramsgate Benefit Integrity Centre asking me to send them 3 years worth of bank statements! Is this reasonable of them to ask this of me? How can they expect anyone to go into their bank, and ask them to print out a nearly forty pages of statements? Thanks in advance, Andy
Hi - my first post here but saddened to read through the threads. I have been charged with benefit fraud despite having mental health issues from PTSD and all the ensuing problems. Heres the thing - the DWP appeared at the door with the police last August and stormed my bedroom even though my Mother told them it would give me panic attacks then the DWP woman proceeded to ransack the room while the police were downstairs with me which I have been told contravenes PACE. I wrote a letter to the office manager and to Lord Fraud, sorry, Freud and was of course blown off Hillsborough style. During interview at police station same DWP woman also accused me of things that could not possibly be true such as my son was never in this country, knowing it would set off a panic attack. Are there human rights? My question is - what recourse do I now have to at least enforce my rights. They think dealing with mentally vulnerable people they can just blast all over us as wr are too weak and I am wanting to show otherwise.
