Monday 10th October 2016 – DWP Income Support New Claims Phone Me (re: I.S. 3rd Claim)

“S” rang me from the DWP, Income Support New Claims. They received my paperwork on 7th October 2016, from Erdington Jobcentre, I’d attended on 5th October 2016, for my work-focussed interview. She said it’s usually a 2 week turnaround. I asked if the processing of my new (3rd claim) could be speeded up, as Birmingham City¬†Council’s Rent Service are threatening to repossess my home. “S” said half the calls they get are from people in desperate circumstances trying to get their payments speeded up, but she’ll request it’s speeded up anyway. She said Councils know it’s generally a 2 week turnaround for processing DWP benefits.

I need I.S. to go into payment ASAP, as my Housing Benefit & Council Tax Benefit are suspended.

About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to endure the stresses of dealing with several different benefits issues. I've got Appeals and Tribunals coming out of my ears. I've lost count of the formal complaints I've had to make. I've kept paper records of most of my interactions with the DWP, HMRC 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, due to health reasons, and being totally overwhelmed. 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....................
