Hi there,

 

I'm just looking for some information regarding " Final JSA payment" I signed off on Friday 20/09/2013 and im just wondering how many days it'll be till i receive the backdated payment?

 

Also my JCP adviser "Fast Tracked" working tax credits for me and i rang them last night and they said i've been awarded Working tax credits but it could take up to two weeks to receive this?

 

My main issue is i dont get paid until 25th October and i've got three children to support and im starting to worry that im not going to be able to do this sufficiently :(

 

Any help i will be most grateful.

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

I signed off on the 5th September, it takes one week for your final JSA payment to hit the bank. I got my final payment on the 12th in the bank. As for WTC it took one week for them to send my new award and my payments should be going in to my bank tomorrow the same date my CTC goes in. Have to say hands up all interested parties, WTC, HB and HMRC (for my self employment) have been superb, very efficient. Sometimes when they act fast they should be applauded. Mind you the paperwork I have been sent today 3 pieces form the same council re HB is needing explaining. Any questions give me a shout! Lily

Hi again,

 

I've managed to sort out my WTC etc but now I've had my housing benefit suspended even though i was told that i would receive 4 weeks extended housing benefit after starting work by my JCP adviser, I've spoken to my Council and they've said i've got to write and let them know and apply for my extended housing benefit but with how far behind they are this could take weeks and my rent is near due again.

 

If anyone could shed some light on this, I would be very grateful.

 

Thanks.

In thought the 4 week extension was scrapped?

I don't think it has been, I'm pretty sure you still get the 4 weeks run-on for your rent after you start work..unless they indeed have changed it recently.

 

I always marvel at how easily the DWP and Council can contact each other if they thought we were committing fraud or something like that, but when it comes to to sorting out genuine payments they suddenly seem unable to contact each other! Keep pestering them; that seems to be the only way to get anything done.

Its defiantly not been scraped as my JCP adviser told me i'd get it as i meet the criteria, Plus i've been told by numerous people that it just "ran on" as the DWP contacted the council and sorted it.

 

But now i'm being told that i've got to apply for it in writing and then wait for a decision. I will do as i've been told but once they've received it i will keep ringing them till i get a decision as i'm not putting my family at risk of being evicted.

 

Shocking communication between two close knit civil servant communities.

 

I just hope to god my housing association understand the situation im in at the moment and dont jump the gun.
