My local Council has sent me a letter (dated 15th September 2016), which I received today. My Housing Benefit & Council Tax Benefit have been suspended. This is because the DWP (Department For Work & Pensions) has notified my Council that my income has changed, i.e. I’ve lost my recent ESA (Employment & Support Allowance – 5th Claim) Tribunal/Appeal. I assume I’m already a couple of weeks in rent arrears. I suppose I’ve got the threat of eviction dropping through my letterbox any day soon to look forward to…………….
I’ve been set a deadline of 1 month to complete on-line change of circumstances form, and to provide proofs of income.
