As long as they can't take money out as well. Why on earth can't they come clean with their decision. They have obviously made one. Even if they had of said that it looks like they will be making payments but that the exact amount will need to be confirmed in writing would have been better. Do i take it that they have the end of never to confirm this in writing?
I filled in the form and sent it off when ds1 was first diagnosed. When I spoke to the Uni bods they told me that although I was only in uni 12 hours a week it was officially FT so I didn;t qualify. I contacted carers immediately, within the hour.
They ahd paid me but said they couldnt reclaim adn could I send a cheque, I almost did but decided to wait a few days- good because I;d have paid twice, they DID take the money out!
And then I had to endure lots of accusations by them of fraudulently claiming and lying even though I had told them myself that I ahd made a mistake. It wasn;t until I lost it a bit and spoke to them as if they were about 2 that they got it.
Wella we are in teh safety of SN Justabout, the safety of benefits apyments is shite: ATM we have been docked half our HB payment becuase they miscalculated it, and student loans are saying similar- I don;t trust any of them an inch any more. Luckily we have JUST enough put aside but that was allocated to stock for DH (damn us trying to earn eh?)
I asked out of interest- as we have an overpayment if DH died and I had to go into a council house (this aplce in his name as I am not working) we wouldn;t get any help at all. Even though they admit they got the student formula wrong. I ahve had to cut his salt and cholesterol levels severely until April JIC .
Scary though. To think that their mistake can put you outside emergency help so easily (we are insured, I was just curious)
I suppose it was a borderline decision as to whether she needed more care - you know, with her being essentially non-verbal, with constant diarrhoea, no concept of danger at all, up all night screaming, and having been turned away by 2 different pre-schools because they couldn't meet her needs
(carnival, lots of float building and welding and the like. PLenty of women to perform, not so many on a Sunday building)
Although if we are chatting it's well known I only ever fancy gay men anyway- I was told 'as a joke' that DH was gay when I met him- when people query the 'other' in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, straight and other- the other is, it would seem, me.
Fortunately we have several gay men and well, even DH doesn;t care about me window shopping there LOL
