More budgeting problems for us on Benefits and I think those on Benefits who are struggling to make ends meet need to be listened to and not preached at by those who don't have to live on benefits.

Why is everyone on benefits stupid like?
Budgeting really isn't that hard and funnily enough you wouldn't have any other option if you were actually in employment.

There is another issue.
The royal mail lose 0.5% of letters the DWP send.
Not infrequently, the first people hear of the DWP making a decision on their claim is that the money doesn't go into the account.
If this change occurs, then by the time that's happened, for many, the time to appeal the decision will have lapsed.

Im on benefits, and the sentence
"Why is everone on benefits stupid like" does not make much sense.
It is not even using the English language correctly.
Stupid like what for example?
"With 75% of people in work being paid monthly, ministers believe it is sensible that benefits are paid in the same manner, helping claimants to get used to managing their money and bills over a four week basis to smooth the transition into work," a DWP spokesman says.

Are you sure its the Royal Mail's fault? It could be another postal carrier who is to blame (the one DWP pays to take the post).
