    Housing benefit suspended 2nd Apr 11 at 2:50 AM
    At the beginning of january i wrote to the housing benefit office to report a change in circumstances. My housing benefit was suspended and still is 4 months later. I've provided 2 months pay slips and all my bank details. I've been sent a letter confirming what i should be getting, but the money isn't being paid. whenever i go to their offices they always seem to have a range of excuses as to why it isn't being paid.

    the question i want to ask is; can i take the council to court over the money they owe me? has anyone done this before?

  • Morning. I'm on my way to @itvthismorning for my Mon slot (on at 11:45) exploring solar panels and if they're worth it.
