    1st question to ask - have you phoned the benefit delivery Centre?
    2. Has it been received?
    3. Has it been lost?


    More information please

    Aparently its been actioned back in August but is just sitting there.They tell me oh it seems to be taking a while and that they will contact the department via email to see what is going and they will be in contact.Its almost like listerning to a recorded message.Apparently I cant contact the department directly who are dealing with it.

    Ive contacted them numerous times with comments and got knowhere,said Id like to lodge a complaint, so they sent me a form to complain about the job centre(no use).I also visisted the job centre and asked for a form to complain and they gave me a form to complain about a claim outcome I dont agree with (Ive filled this out and am intending to send it off).
    To hand it into a Job Centre I need an address to send it to otherwise it will go missing and surely Cosham are a different company than the Job Centre,so will it get to where it should?
    I may well have to take some time off work in order to visist a job centre.

    Have you contacted your MP? They will know who to write to, and a letter from them is likely to get more action than one from you. It is wrong, you should be just as important in your own right, but it will get a faster result.

    Simple as this.I handed it into the manager at my local benefits office.She sent me a letter to say they will send it on and that they get mystery shoppers.Few days later I received a call and a letter apologising profusely and payment will be sent soon for the full amount.Amazing how effect a complaint is,when you consider I had been contacting them for months about this before.
