I was made redundant in Jan this year and obviously signed on. Now i work part time occasionally behind a bar, say 8-12 hours as and when required. Now being the honest guy i am i have always decalred this. They have then adjusted my benefit depending on how much i have earnt.

Now since May this year they have introduced a new system of checking the work etc. But i recently i notieced my payments were not correct.


For example if in the first week i earnt £30, they would reduce my benefit accordingly, and i would presume week 2 where i didnt do any work would be full benefit. WRONG. There new system automatically presumes i also worked in the second week when in fact i havent.


I only noticed this after recieving a benfit payment for £60. for 2 weeks money when in fact it should have been £100. The staff are unaware of this problem, and are now having to recheck every payment since January.


If you do part time work whatso ever, double check the figures they send you!

Part-time work that is regular can be part-time assessed, averaging your wages out weekly so that the benefit amount is the same each week and making it easier to budget. These reviews are not system automatic but manually input after a set period of part-time work declaration.

What do you mean 'checking the work?' how do they do that, do you mean they get intouch with your boss and they confirm the hours you have worked?
