    • Yes she went back to them and asked them to remove the cancellation however the girl on the phone went to ask someone and came back and said she couldn’t.   Thing is they then tried to charge her £1000 to reinsure, I contacted a broker and got it down to £760, she went back to them and they miraculously could do it for £690!!  It feels like they are using this to fleece her, her previous ins was £300.   I will get her to write a complaint to them...do you know if there’s an insurance ombudsman she could contact?    I just feel it would have been fair fair to suspend the ins pending the court outcome!    Thankyou.
    • Hi,    Yes my daughter drove through a red light.   Yes her DVLA was still registered to her previous address at Uni hence them not being able to contact her hence the MS90.   This is her 1st car and she simply didn’t think to re register her car to our address she genuinely forgot!  However we left our forwarding address with the letting agent but the house was subsequently sold and the new owner used a different letting agency so communication was lost.   The courts enlisted the bailiffs and when the current tenant found her via Facebook she was genuinely mortified as she had no idea that she had broken this light.   She immediately rang the bailiffs and court who advised her to make The Statuary Declaration, whilst waiting for that date to arrive she thought she better ring the insurance company to explain what was happening thinking they may have to suspend her policy however they cancelled it on the spot she asked them not to but they just went ahead charging her £50 to do so.   At court after she explained what had happened the court dropped the MS90, and reduced the points and fine to what it would have been originally.   Going back to the insurance company they said they couldn’t remove the cancelled policy and it would show on her record for life and tried to charge her £1000 to reinsure!!  Previously it had been £300 as she had built up 2 years no claims.   I contacted a broker who said he could insure her for £760, she went back to her original insurance company, Admiral who then said they could now do it for £690!!  How can they suddenly do that sounds unscrupulous to me and that they are using this cancellation to now fleece her!!   She is a medical student and needs the car to get to the different places she is working on placement but can’t afford to pay this extortionate amount of money.  I would expect her policy to go up a bit but would say max £500 is proportionate?    I will I’ll get her to contact them Regards making a complaint in writing as you have suggested.   Thank you.    
    • I’m not sure who you mean by the OD and do you want me to see if the PDL is enforceable or not pay it at all?   And what should I do about the NatWest? Surly there’s a case getting it wiped if the charges came from them charging me for a PBA that I had told them to close and they said they had. Also am I paying the credit cards back in full or trying to get a reduced settlement?   Thanks Andrew 
    • Initial payments have already come in - we wouldn't have started otherwise. There's about £3,500 outstanding. The £800 was verbally agreed initially, but later correspondence from the customer shows that he's accepted the £800 for the extra work.

You're entitled to declare up to two periods of sickness in any year of your claim, each of which can last up to 14 days. During a period of sickness you are exempted from jobseeking activities, including signing on.

 

You need to complete the (very simple) form JSA28 and get it back to your Jobcentre as soon as possible. The best way to get the form would be to ask a friend to collect one for you, but if that's not possible they can post one out to you. Also call the Jobcentre to let them know what's happening.

 

You will still receive your two weeks money, but it may be delayed as the Jobcentre can't release your payment until they get the form back.

be very careful about being sanctioned...plenty of stories around of people ringing up the jobcentre & told it's fine to miss the signing appt then being sanctioned for 4 weeks. give them any excuse under the current regime & they will sanction you. sanctioned people don't count in the unemployment figures...so if you can attend the jobcentre then try to do so.

You can't be sanctioned for non-attendance if the form JSA28 has been completed and returned.

To the op,

 

Are you really that ill? if not then try to make it down to the jobcentre to sign on as your payment will be late or it could be worse like you could end up sanctioned if Jobcentre doesn't receive the JSA28 form in time.

And given the DWP's canny knack of 'losing' letters and forms, you may not be actually sanctioned but you could well find yourself without any money for quite a few weeks until they eventually 'find' the JSA28 or get round to sending out a further form and waiting for it's return!

 

Mind you I do actually believe that the DWP's attitude is stop the money and sanction first then argue the toss if you did/didn't complete and send the form that went 'missing'.

 

I had a count up a few weeks ago over my ESA claim (yes I know that it isn't JSA). Over a period of 8 months 43 letters were sent to the DWP (Canterbury BDC), they replied to 1. Out of 51 telephone requests for a call back - none were received. They lost 7 MED3 forms, I had to complete 5 ESA application forms and they 'lost' a whole bundle of bank statements, pension policies, birth certificates, Council Tax invoices as well as invoices for work carried out to our home.
