I am having trouble with a particular question on the application form (SF500) for a budgeting loan

It is the question on Part 4 of the form

 

'Tell us the date you have been getting any of these benefits or entitlements in the last 26 weeks' . I have been getting part income support part incapacity benefit for more than 26 weeks.

 

do I put the date in when I STARTED getting income support over a year ago or from the date 26 weeks ago to current date (date of last Income support payment) I am puzzled about this

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Its the date that you made your Income Support claim from

 

if you are unsure of this date then just ring your local office tomorrow and they will tell the exact date

 

by the sounds of it you have claimed for well over the twenty six weeks needed to qualify so you should ok.

You don't need to worry about it. You can write "uncertain of exact dates - longer than 26 weeks", as they have to check this as a matter of course in their decision making, and take relevant benefit prints to evidence their decision.

 

The vast majority of claimants have no idea of the exact date their benefit started. I couldn't tell you the exact date when my tax credit claim started but I could say the year it started.


My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.

forum rules to advise via private message, therefore pm's requesting private advice will not receive a response.

As with all of these kind of forms. If you are unsure of any particular question, just attach a covering letter explaining your answer to the best of your ability. They will work the rest out for you.


Please note that although my advice is offered, you should consult your legal representative before taking ANY action.

 

 

have a nice day !!

When I applied for one I just put the year I started claiming and then wrote 'to date'. It worked for me.

 

Hope this helps
