This thread is just horrible. And old. And full of spam. It keeps coming up in active convos with loan companies posting on it.

How unfair* and thats for all of you kicking of about something that has nothing to do with you this woman asked how long it would take for a response on her loan, Not how many snobs will comment on it. Lord no wonder the uk's getting so much bad credit :/.

Trishlee Sat 13-Sep-14 05:42:28

Lmao sorry biboo but you said if they don't accept your loan you won't be happy, because of the matress and then 9 mins later say it was rejected.... honey it takes longer then 9 mins for the dwp to get back to you lmao leave this woman alone and go bitch and moan about how u fair life is to others. If "YOU'RE" the one getting the loan then "YOU'RE" the one paying it back its no one elses buisness me thinks.

Biboo, in regards to specialist matress and bed for child you are better applying for a community care grant or go through the family fund, i have a child with special needs and find these options better for anything he needs

I seriously cant stick stuck up mums that think people with kids are not allowed to apply for budgeting loans for whatever reason they need them its got f**k all to do with anyone else what there used for! At end of the day there getting paid back! Before i worked i took out budgeting loans and applied for community care grants! I know work full time and i dont look down my nose to anyone who needs a bit of help!Not anyone else's fault that you obv must be a stay at home mum who's husband rakes in money that you don't need to work! Stop your moaning and get a life!

you can get a budgeting loan for what ever reason you want a holiday a car it dont matter at the end of the day you are paying it back no one else so who cares what other people think oh and im on a benefit where you cant get one but that dont bother me you do what you like with your money as your paying it back

Declined my application so looks like a mum with disabled child goes without

Biboo Fri 11-Jul-14 11:20:09

I agree I have applied for a budgeting loan for a specialist mattress for my Autistic child and a new bed for her

I won't be happy if its refused as its a must and specialist mattress dont come cheap...

And this is a genuine need

Here's a little tip to geting a bugeting loan with better chances of being accepted!!! I noticed in my previous applications found apply either just after the start of a new working year or sometimes near the end of!! Due to just receiving the social fund or they need to use up any they have left toward the end of the financial year quite common sense when you think about it then there is don't put in for more than the 1500as you will have it sent back also when putting down how much is out going always leave enough so they can see you have moneys left over to pay back the loan it's little things like these that help your chances getting a BL hope they helped some?!!!

I hope to god that money is not towards a holiday shame on you If it is as, personally I recon that's certainly NOT what it's for!!!!

Cheerios have you had your surestart maternity grant? Also look at free cycle and Facebook for free and cheap baby stuff.

MarvellousMabel Fri 04-Apr-14 19:34:50

cheerios09 - might be helpful to start your own thread for advice/help specific to you?

The situation Sounds horrid
