Another useless government department not fit for the purpose.

After two hours of making me jump through hoops and running me around in circles they finally claimed I don't exist! :clown:

That being the case I wonder how come they know my name, address and national insurance number? Also who's been sending me threatening letters for the past thirty years with their return address on it? :roll:

Why the national press keeps plugging this website is beyond me, they've clearly never tried using it. :fuming:

Seriously, is there any other sort?

The waste within government circles is truly shocking. :fuming:

I have been helping someone claim Universal Credit. She came to me for assistance because claims must be made on line. That could be a little difficult if claimant cannot afford a PC. The form was a little daunting but better than many government forms that I have seen. Received an email back offering an interview yesterday at 2.10pm. The lady we saw was helpful but we were told that it takes four weeks to process a claim then if the benefit is allowed then another two weeks before any payment is made. For some that could mean six weeks without money.
