Hi all,

I had a phone call from Capita yesterday and the woman on the other end of the phone was quite aggressive and hostile. ~She spoke really fast too.



I have severe mental health issues and numerous physical issues including needing to be near a loo. She tried to demand I go for a f2f in a place I don't know at all. I told her this and she said "but you get out daily, don't you?" I said of course I can't not with this health. She very reluctantly allowed me an appointment at home but no choice of date.



I am now at my wits end as I never allow even the few friends I have to come into my house due to my physical and mental health. My house is a bit of a tip as I suffer extreme fatigue due to Crohn's Disease and arthritis. My mental health is also such that I can't physically do what I want to do when I want to do things.



I don't have anyone I can ask to be with me at the allotted time and am terrified of having to let a stranger into my home. I haven't lived in the area long and don't feel I can rely on any of my medical team.



Any suggestions please?

No I haven't had one since I moved here. I really don't know if I can go through this alone, but have no idea what to do.




Contact your local Council tomorrow and ask to speak to on of the Income Revenue Officers, they help fill out PIP forms and also can assist with other Departments if needed.


or if you live in a Housing Association property, give them a ring and ask for the team that deal with financial assistance (they are mainly attached to the finance department).


They will call them on your behalf, fill out forms and help as best as they can.


Best Wishes

I had a disastrous assessment with a very nasty nurse.


I was on higher rates for both components.

I can't believe how much detail I went into on the form and evidence supplied.


I know from the report that the assessor has contradicted herself throughout, but I can't believe I scored not 1 point.


I have Crohns disease,




chronic fatigue due to malabsorbtion and

severe mental health issues.


I also have a liquid feed going through a tube in my abdomen into my stomach.


the nurse and I did discuss my mobility scooter and the fact that I cannot propel my wheelchair and that I genuinely cannot go to an unknown place.

So i'm truly shocked by what she wrote.

She seemed more interested in the fact that I draw and drive an automatic car.


I simply cannot understand her.

She also used a raised voice the whole time.

I just didn't have anyone with me and suffered it alone,


although she stated she would leave and come back at another date to finish off as she 'could see she was stressing me out'.

I told her to stay as I would never let her back in my place.

I almost dialled 999 to have her arrested and removed.


I have put in for my mandatory reconsideration and was wondering how long this will take.


In the mean time am I allowed to use my bus pass and must I tax my car immediately?


Also, with bedroom tax and an overpayment i'm really feeling the pinch,

can I get help with the bedroom tax and can the overpayment be brought into line with what I can afford.


I'm suffering so much mental and physical anguish over this I really don't know how i'm going to cope.

Please keep to one thread

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

They are for an 'ongoing period'.


i'm quite pleased

but what I would like to know is if I scored 4 points moving around and 4 points to have someone with me do I have 50% tax reduction on my vehicle or not. Thanks in advance.
