Repost: Income Support Backdated payment (shortened and simplified)

Hi

I have been denied backdated pay because I didn't hand in one wage slip
(which I did not have due to employer's fault) therefore supposedly making
it a month since evidence was handed in. All other wage slips were handed in
within a month but the benefits agency claim to have sent 2 letters about
the issue which were not received. However, the benefits agency office
decided to phone over a month after the initial application form was filled
in.

This makes it extrememely difficult with having earnt £0 for so long and
having bills and living costs. I *really* need this backpayment.

IMO it's the fault of the benefits agency for failing to alert me to the
problem. If I'd known sooner I'd have sorted it straight away without a
problem. It's not like I was trying to hide something or had any reason to
not send them the wage slip. One can not help feeling that the benefits
agency have done this on purpose in order to save themselves a few hundred
quid.

I have been given this link
http://www.adviceguide.org.uk/nm/index/life/benefits/income_support.htm

but the info is pretty basic.

I will go to the CAB but I wondered if any of you knowledgeable people could
help...

Thanks in advance.

they are jokers, if you have given all the info requested then they cannot
do this to you, it happens too much, pissing people about. Demand to speak
to the manager. Put it all in writing to him/her and however high up you can
get.
