I have received no benefits of any kind for July, August and September. There has been no explanation, and no transition period between working tax credit and starting UC, and in fact no information from the DWP at all except when I have made contact with them.
I’m deeply shocked that the government would sanction such a huge decrease in benefit payments. I thought I would not be affected by the change to universal credit. I was wrong. I look forward to taking a stand with everyone else in a similar situation as soon as possible – if I can afford to do so. Name and address supplied
