Friday 21st October 2016 – DWP Fail To Meet Their Deadline For Processing My Income Support Claim (3rd claim)

The DWP (Department for Work & Pensions) was supposed to have processed my 3rd Claim for Income Support by close of business today. I’m desperate. So I rang them again. I waited for 26 irritating minutes before “N” at Torquay Service Centre finally answered my call.  He said my claim is still with the Decision Maker. As the DWP have exceeded their processing deadline, “N” will email Handworth Benefits processing office, & I should receive a call back on Monday 24th Oct between 9am & 12 noon.

Nobody at the DWP has had the courtesy to keep me informed of progress. The Decision Maker at Handsworth Benefit Processing (DWP) has been sitting on it for over 1 week. Birmingham City Council has already served me with a NOTICE OF SEEKING POSSESSION of my council house. I need Income Support to commence, so that my entitlement to Housing Benefit & Council Tax Benefit can be backdated, as my rent account is several hundred pounds in arrears.

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