    Housing benefits UNDER CAUTION LETTER 6th Apr 18 at 5:48 PM
    I received a letter from dwp to attend a interview regarding housing benefit capital/ savings.

    Can someone please advice what kind of question they might may ask. I have capital around 7k into my account and pay around £700 into my credit cards each month other than bills etc and earns £480 a month.

    Also few days ago made council aware I started receiving carer allowance for my child and asked them to recalculate my benefit.

    Is someone gone through this situation please comment, Iím really worried.

    Please advice.

    Thanks NYM and bspm for your your support here today! I really have no idea how Wizardy can report me because i actually have this poster on ignore and have done since i was last attacked by him!! I thought if you have a person on ignore they also can't see what you're posting? Can someone please correct me if i'm wrong?

    This poster clearly doesn't like me and i also think they're either a friend of Aaronlowe and Andy's or one of their "troll" gang. If he wasn't on my ignore list i'd go ahead and report him too, sadly that's not possible unless i remove him from my list..... Not likely!

    Otherwise I could, for example, ignore you and then run about telling everyone how you post contradictory nonsense and have lots of puppet accounts to back you up! Itd be sad if you couldnt see what I was saying.

    I too have the fool on my ignore list

    Unlike Andy, he posts his tripe across a number of MSE forums so is somewhat harder to avoid.

    Well I think if you put someone on ignore you cannot see what they type and they cannot see what you type unless someone copies your post and then the ignored person can see it?

    But actually just because you have ignored one poster they could pop up with one of their other names and read your post.

    Like I said, confusing.

    Ignoring all the rubbish which is currently being spouted in this thread, if somebody has an entitlement to a non Income Related benefit there is no reason for them not claim it irrespective of what other money they have.

    Agree. Very difficult to ignore all the rubbish though isn't it when genuine posters are asking for help and are being ill advised.

    Goes without saying though that uncalled for posts will creep in.

    I am so sick of all this.

    Trying to help posters is becoming so difficult.

    Threads are being derailed and misinformation being given.

    Please can the board guide swiftly close threads once the poster has all the information they need?
