    • OK, so Idem has sent back the quickest response in history following the CCA letter from my OH. An envelope arrived today.   They've sent another copy of the original and signed, application form  from 2000 - most  of which is illegible however, husband's name, address and signature is clear - the small writing is very blurry.  They've also sent numerous A4 pages of what they say is the agreement (it's photocopies of what look likes old pages). There's no signature on it. It's just pages of A4.    Does this help us at all??   Also, am I right in thinking that day claim arrived (4th Sept) + 33 days = Monday 7th October, which is when the defence needs to be in by?   Thanks as always.
    • Hello all,    I have received a letter from Advantis in regards to an overpayment of carers allowance I received when I got a job whilst I was caring for my mother. I did not know I had to inform them etc.    Long story short, I had a compliance phonecall with carers and nothing more was said.    I stopped caring for my mum shortly after and cancelled my carers allowance too.    I was employed for 4 months at the beginning of 2018.    Apparently the DWP and carers have sent letters but I haven't responded so they've gone through Advantis to recover the amount owed. I moved house shortly after cancelling everything and had no contact from them at all.    They sent letters to my previous address so they told me that's why it's been passed onto Advantis.    Today DWP told me that the only thing they can do is take payment in full, or deal with Advantis to come up with a payment plan.    I spoke to Advantis who asked me to pay in full or in two installments, I refused and they then said they've put my account on hold for 30 days whilst I go away and work out my monthly income etc so they can go through an affordability assessment to work out how much I can pay back and how often.      What shall I do? DWP tell me there's nothing they can do as it's been passed onto Advantis.    Advantis tell me they are working on behalf of the DWP... Nobody will tell me who owns the debt.     What shall I do?    Thank you all in advance for your amazing help.     
    • Hi, I have just received a pcn from Euro Car Parks saying that my car was in one of their car parks for 13 mins without making a payment. The reason being is that my husband was waiting for me, but where he thought I would only be 5 mins I was longer because of health issues and I had to take a rest. As if this wasn't enough, unbelievably I have just received ANOTHER notice saying I had not paid for a ticket on the 9th of September. I would like to mention the car park charges are so cheap, at £1:20 all day, it would be insane not to pay. We have used this car park only around 4 times and have always paid, excepting th time the car was waiting for 13mins. What a shock I have got receiving these notices. I wonder if I accidentally keyed in my registration incorrectly? Please can someone advise.
    • I also have a similar problem with Advantis for DWP overpayment of carers allowance. I've only just moved into my own house and they've sent a letter asking for my whereabouts and a business matter that needs my urgent attention. I have found out from the DWP and carers that I owe £1,131 and Advantis want me to go through an affordability assessment.    I am not sure who owns the debt, DWP or Advantis and where I stand with this 
    • I've just had this emailed from CarMoney. I'm so confused, I really don't know what I'm supposed to be doing and with whom. "Apologies for the delay in response. I have spoken to Oodle regarding the complaint and unfortunatly, they would require an independent report to be carried out on the vehicle. The burden of proof would lie with yourself.   I can certainly help by giving you the details of Scotia, who is the company that we use."   Everything I've read says that I did the right thing by exercising my rights under the CRA 2015 with the dealer. That was done within the six-months, so the burden of proof should be on the dealer still? Or am I completely wrong??

On my last signing day, my knee locked before I was able to sign on, so I filled in a sickness form and this has been approved.

 

I completed the date I will be well again to be the full 14 days as I wasn't sure how long my knee would take to feel strong again, I have a cartilage problem so once it locks once, it tends to do it again a few times before settling down.

 

Now as I completed the date I will be well will be my next signing day - I completed sick from 3rd - 17th March

 

My question is

 

Do I have to go and sign on this day?

 

Or do I miss it as technically I am still sick?

 

Any advice welcome

 

Thanks

If you declared yourself sick from the 3rd to the 17th March inclusive, that's actually 15 days, not 14. Strictly speaking, JCP staff should have questioned that.

 

I advise that you attend and sign, and hope no-one notices.

Let me rephrase my last post - you should sign on the 17th because, should someone question this JSA28 (sickness form) at a later date, you can say that you miscounted the days but you did actually turn up and sign on the 15th day, so you were indeed fit for work. As you have said in your post that you genuinely will be well again, that's the best approach.

I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee, It will randomly lock, it is also very painful when using steps, My GP thinks that it is unlikely to improve, And as a result my good side ,(my foot )wears out soles my footwear prematurely , I feel that i should be able to claim for this, as being on only the pre assessment rate of ESA i can't afford to keep buying shoes ,

The DWP will only allow you to non attend through sickness or other reasons iirc 3 times in any 12mths period without being sanctioned , this may of been changed since the con dumbs got in power so the number of times maybe less now

:Jobseekers and Sickness:

 

Jobseekers are allowed two periods of sickness, of up to fourteen days each, during each complete twelve months from the start of the claim. Completion of a JSA28 form with acceptable details of the sickness, allows the claimant to be treated, and paid benefit, as actively seeking employment during the sickness.

 

Disputes about other reasons for non attendance; bereavement, childcare problems, domestic emergencies, etcetera, are referred to a Jobcentreplus decision maker for determination of whether the reason constitutes good cause for the non attendance.

 

Margaret.
