I’ve received the Mandatory Reconsideration Notice/Decision dated 7th March 2017, today. Inverness DRT (Dispute Resolution Team – DWP) say they’ve not changed the original Decision, that I wasn’t entitled to Income Support (4th claim) from the 4th of January 2017.
I’d had to terminate my JSA (2nd claim) on 3rd Jan 2017, as I said I wouldn’t be able to actively jobseek or accept employment for a while, as I’m severely overwhelmed with paperwork & legal preparation for my many Tribunals, & I was expecting to move house. But Jobclub Advisor “J” at Sutton Coldfield Jobcentre wouldn’t allow me to reduce my claimant commitment to zero hours. I have also previously been turned down for ESA (6th claim).
Looks like I’ll be heading down the Tribunal route for my Income Support (4th claim) too, now.
