Talk / Just in cases anyone gets messed about claiming Universal Credit
« Last post by lankou on December 08, 2017, 05:14:01 PM »
This has just appeared on the DWP website, I suggest anyone who thinks the may be claiming Universal Credit here is how it SHOULD work.
I suggest downloading it and saving it just in case:-

Something that wouldn't go through their scanning system.  I'll PM you.

Thankyou I wasnít sure.
I had a drs appointment today just to update him and to get some more medication.
Medical people havenít contacted him as yet.
He said it would be easier for all the people going through this if medical people got in touch with GPS and other consultants to confirm people medical diagnosis etc that way it would stop a lot of people having to go to these assessments as they could tell them if there was anyway you would be able to work or not.
I think that is something the DWP need to look at.
He asked me where the centre was I would be going and if anyone would be taking me.
Which I think was nice.
I am to book another appointment to see him after the assessment.

''UC lines closed for most of Christmas''

Ah'm wondering, will that mean no 'orrible brown envelopes on the door mat for a few days?
Sunny, might I ask what was the format the DWP rejected and what sort of format is it that they require reconsiderations to take?

Ally, I hope everything goes well for your op tomorrow.
Sunny, how long do you have to send it in again?  Can you take a few days off before doing this?
I sent in my request for a reconsideration but it got sent back and I've got to send it in again in a different format.  But I'm in meltdown and draft after draft is just more and more emotional.  I feel barely rational now.

Lidl have some healthcare items from this Sunday, including a £30 heated overblanket, these are wonderful, and very moneysaving. Mine from Aldi has lasted four winters. They cost about the same as a lightbulb to run.

My gutter crutches arrived today, and although I am a bit nervous with them, supporting my weight is  so much easier than using my sticks.
The end of the stick is narrow enough to fit a tripod ferrule, so I will be doing that. I didnít feel at all confident with standard crutches, and wasnít sure if I could use the gutter version, so I am relieved. They have red grips and ferrules, and feature reflectors on the hand grips.
