Wednesday 15th March 2017 – I Receive Benefit Decision Notice From Birmingham City Council, re: Rent, HB & CTB

The Decision Notice is dated the 8th March 2017, yet it was only delivered this afternoon!

It informs me that I’ve been overpaid £31.74 in HB,, and that I’ll now be liable to pay £15.87 each week from 8th March too (non-dependent charge), as my HB will only be £86,56pw!

There’s no mention of them refunding me the £204.86 (2 x weeks’ rent) paid with my credit card on 17th Jan 2017, that I’d asked to be refunded to me when they’d processed my changes of circumstances.

The DWP’s incompetence and their sheer inertia when it comes processing my claims, or providing me with help/advice, causes my significant HB & Rent woes.

About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to deal with several different benefits issues. I've got Appeals and Tribunals coming out of my ears, and have pretty much lost any faith I ever had in the British Justice/Tribunals system. I've lost count of the formal complaints I've had to make. I've had numerous interactions with the DWP, HMRC, Birmingham City Council, 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. Over the last few years, I have endured a conveyor belt of shit decisions from HMCTS. The piss-poor postal services that HMCTS, HMRC, Birmingham City Council, the DWP, & CSA rely on (bulk printing and several different carriers), compound the ineptitude of these departments and agencies. 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....................
