does anybody know how long it may take a decision maker to look at my claim?
my payments have been suspended since the 2nd September whilst they look at my earnings and childcare costs. It has been with a decision maker since the 10th September.
Today, they tell me that it may take several months!
in the meantime, its causing me significant hardship but they seem disinterested.
Does anyone know how the DWP take into account childcare? I earn £176.53 after national insurance and 50% of my pension contributions deducted but my childcare costs are £200 a week. Tax credits pay £90 towards them ( do DWP take this into account) but even if they contributed the full 70% of £140, I would still have to pay £60 put of my own pocket, taking my earnings to £116.53 which is below the threshold.
Hi Claire , Ive just had the same letter. They are checking my eligibilty too. Im worried about my child care costs as pay a student will i need receipts from her? Do you have any idea why they suspended your payments . As i dont know why are as i have been in the same job for over 12 years.
