“Anybody else been bombarded with letters stating you haven’t sent the evidence in to support your claim, when you have? I’m not phoning them as last week 1 phone call cost £9.17p. Disgusting. I haven’t got the money to keep phoning so I wrote to universal credit. No reply. Sent 2 emails to job center and still nothing”.
Recently there’s been a very large number of people on my social media posting despairing messages as a result of Universal Credit cock-ups. I’m posting a selection here.
Universal Credit is the new benefit system designed to make a single payment of several separate benefits, and it is currently being imposed on thousands of people without any interest in whether it actually works. It affects working people as well as the unemployed and disabled.
