Hi Each

 

Had an odd request from my neighbour that she has received a letter for a home vist for JC+ via a customer compliance officer.

 

Would this just be to satisfy a recent claim ? I have stated that as it is not being held under caution it is probably just to as I say to assess a recent claim, but thought I would check

Hello there.

 

I'll move this to the benefits section, where the guys should be able to help you.

The visit is likely to be procedural.... occasionally, Job Centre Plus Staff will randomly visit claimants, one reason being to identify claimants who are working but who failed to declare the change in circumstances.

Yes, basically your claim can get chosen at random for a compliance check.

Hi all

 

Further to this thread it seems that my neighbour has actually taken in a non paying lodger , a close friend , who does not pay rent but works, as it is a temporary situation.

Is this classed as benefit fraud ? The claim she makes is for ESA , which could explain a visit from cco ?

 

Any advice on this would be gratefully received.

If the only benefit she claims is contribution based ESA then no it is not fraud. If she claims anything else, maybe. Invesitgations can be made with regards to living together as a couple, or with regards to possible income.

Hi estellyn

 

It is contribution based and ceases in a few weeks time due to the 12 month maximum period.

 

She has had to submit a new claim as from Nov 2o ESA stops, I am guessing they need to assess her living style ? I think her lodgers ex partner may try to be causing issues, but possibly they are assessing her new claim.

 

Gosh this seems too involved, how can people defraud....... What will they be looking for in living arrangements any idea ?
