Monday 10th October 2016 – I Phone DWP, re: Income Support (3rd Claim), To Check On Progress

I’ve phoned the Department for Work & Pensions to check on the progress of my new Income Support claim (3rd claim). I waited for 12 minutes for my call to be answered, by “J” at Gloucester Benefits Centre. I explained how I’ve received a letter from Birmingham City Council’s Rent Service on Saturday 8th October 2016, threatening repossession, as I’m in rent arrears since Housing Benefit & Council Tax Benefit were suspended. “J” will contact the Benefits Processing Centre (New Claims), they open at 9am, tell them my circumstances, & hopefully they’ll speed things up. Someone should call me back between 9am and 12 noon.

[Total time on phone 22 minutes]

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....................
