Wednesday 2nd November 2016 – I Phone 0800 0556688 To Make New Claim For JSA (2nd JSA Claim)

As I’ve just been advised by “S” at Handsworth Benefit Processing (DWP) to do, I phoned 0800 0556688 to make a new claim for JSA (Jobseeker’s Allowance). “S” at Rotherham Contact Centre (DWP) answered, & I explained the chaos of the last 2 months as regards ESA-JSA-I.S. and now I’m again having to make a claim for JSA. I requested backdating to 7th September 2016. “S” said the system wasn’t letting him do anything, so he put me on hold, then he said a “full gather” was done on 28th September 2016 (which is when I’d previously tried to claim JSA, but woman taking my claim had said I was entitled to Income Support!), so he can’t take a new claim for me.

“S” booked me an appointment at a Jobcentre next week. I must turn up half an hour early, it’s a clerical appointment, & I’ll be given a form to complete. I must take my bank statement, P45, CV (if I’ve got one), & I.D., & I’ll go through Jobseeker’s Agreement. [Total of 24 mins on phone.]

About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to deal 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, for a variety of reasons. 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....................
