    • They don't need to force the issue in court. Even though the IVA is officially terminated, HSBC will not release the PPI payment until the IVA provider confirms it holds no interest in the payment. And the IVA provider is already claiming it does have an interest. The likelihood is that HSBC will give the PPI payment to Creditfix and it will then be up to Jacksmyboy to make a claim for the money.
    • as you say the v5c is not in your name the car legally is nothing to do with you then and not your problem. hope the garage has got it insured...
    • Possibly not...thats for you the claimant to calculate the settlement figure as of that date of payment.
    • Hi hoping someone can help please. My husband sold yesterday his quad bike. It's been laying in the garage for 18 months and due to ill health,  was the main reason for selling.    The quad was put through it's MOT the previous day and passed. I advertised it and it generated a lot of interest. The only problem it had I put in the ad. The speedo was not working.    Viewings were yesterday and the potential buyer wanted to test it. Unfortunately the disc lock was on when he tried to reverse which resulted the disc brake coming off. My husband tried to remedy it but said it may take hour or so. The buyer agreed to come back with the money later which he did with a mechanic.    The problem wasnt sorted and there was a lot of swearing as the buyer wanted it. The mechanic told him to wait to see if could be fixed.   They went off and came back within the hour but the job was proving a tough one.  He still wanted the quad and it was agreed we would message once it was sorted.  The weather took a turn for the worst with heavy rain so the job was put on hold til it stopped.    Later that day the buyer messaged to see how things were going. I said he may have to collect today due to the weather. As it turns out the rain stopped and job finished.   We had planned to go out but my husband was too tired so i messaged to say it was fixed. He came to collect it with his Dad. It was tested 3 times by himself and his Dad all happy.   The paperwork complete and money handed over, although we knocked another £20 off for fuel plus £10 he said he lost somewhere between his pocket and my hand.  It was put in the van I dont think secured hubby said. Less than hour later he messages to say it not working starter motor had gone?   Hubby went through few things but he said still not working but horn and lights were. Was getting a little annoyed as it was working when it left here and he was happy. Hubby suggested charging battery which was new. I asked him to return it but he says he cant until monday as he has no transport.    Today hes messaged. Hes charged battery up and says its just cutting out so hubby is going to look at it now to see whats wrong.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Work and health programme

Recommended Posts

I went to my local job centre a few days ago and they are going to put me on the work and health programme.  However, after looking on google it is for people that have been out of work for 24 months.  I last worked in August 2017 so do I have to take part in this now or not.

 

I have to visit the job centre tomorrow about this programme.

 

Has anyone been on this before ?

 

Thanks

As far as I understand this course, it is for people who have been out of work for a period and who have suffered from a health condition, which might cause them difficulty in obtaining work.  

 

I think when the course started it was originally for those who have been out of work for 24 months or more, but I seem to remember reading that a referral could be made after 12 months.

 

The course provider has been employed by DWP to help people find work. So yes there will be some gentle pressure to find suitable work. They work with different employers in your area, arrange job trials,  help you with applications, CV writing,  advise you of rights if you have disability, help you with any issues you might have after starting work.

 

If you don't want to do this course, you will have to show the Work Coach evidence of the steps you are taking to find work. Or if you are not ready healthwise, what help you are receiving to get you ready to start work again. The Work Coach will want to see that what you doing in terms of applications has a reasonable chance of success. 


We could do with some help from you.

Ok this Government website should help you.

 

https://www.gov.uk/work-health-programme

 

Says voluntary unless out of work for 24 months or more.

 

It might be that a referral takes awhile to go through and they are wanting to push you more to find work. I.e. If you don't want to go on a course, it might spur you on to making more job applications. Your claimant commitment could be reviewed to increase what you are required to do.
