I attend Erdington Jobcentre for my Work-Focussed Interview, for my Income Support (3rd) Claim. The advisor “D” was actually nice & pleasant, yet she too said she was unaware that being a “Party To Proceedings” was one of the lesser known eligibility criteria for claiming Income Support. Luckily, I’d taken a couple of copies from on-line to show her, she copied one of the information sheets to forward off to I.S. processing with the rest of my paperwork.
“D” said it can take up to 2 weeks to process my I.S. Claim, despite me already being in rent arrears.
