Thursday 8th September 2016 – I’ve Not Received Any ESA Payment Since 16th August 2016! (5th Claim)

Today, I rang the DWP/ESA on 0345 6088545, to ask why I’ve received no ESA (Employment & Support Allowance) payment since 16th August 2016, despite Royal Mail’s Track & Trace service showing they’d received my latest Medical Certificate on 25th August 2016.

I waited 19 minutes for my call to be answered. At first, “D” at Bootle Contact Centre said they’ve only received medical evidence (Med Cert) covering me up to 16th Aug 2016. He then put me on hold for a few minutes, then he said they’ve located my latest Med Cert (that the DWP has been sitting on since 25th Aug 2016), & a payment will be released to me today. He put me on hold again for several minutes to arrange this, then “D” confirmed payment’s gone through. (Total time I was on phone: 35 mins).

About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to deal with several different benefits issues. I've got Appeals and Tribunals coming out of my ears, and have pretty much lost any faith I ever had in the British Justice/Tribunals system. I've lost count of the formal complaints I've had to make. I've had numerous interactions with the DWP, HMRC, Birmingham City Council, etc for years, so I've literally got several hundred posts (maybe thousands) to compose for this website. I can't post them to here as quick or as often as I'd like to, for a variety of reasons. Over the last few years, I have endured a conveyor belt of shit decisions from HMCTS. The piss-poor postal services that HMCTS, HMRC, Birmingham City Council, the DWP, & CSA rely on (bulk printing and several different carriers), compound the ineptitude of these departments and agencies. I intend to go back years, eventually. But at this rate, I don't think I'll ever get to post everything I want to. You can see from what I've put up so far that I've got a lot of crap to deal with. I'm probably not even 1% or 2% done. I am slowly rotting....................
