Do you know when the matter will be reconsidered please?
The mandatory reconsideration was 17/02/2014, but I don't know decision yet my savings soon finish.
The mandatory reconsideration was 17/02/2014, but I don't know decision yet. How long by law they can make decision? In one week finish my savings and I can't pay bills.
Its bad news I am afraid - the DWP has no time limit to make the reconsideration
However generally one would expect this to be done within 28 days.
If it is not then you should write to the DWP and make a formal complaint regarding the time taken
For more information please see:
I am sorry if this is not the answer you are looking for and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I think that DWP work regulate the law. As far as I know they should sent decision within one week, am I right? Could you agree your information: write the link for more information, please. Thanks.
You are wrong sadly, there is no time limit for them to make a reconsideration decision.
Please see: http://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/appeals-and-mandatory-reconsideration
"From 28 October 2013 you can only appeal against a decision on a DWP-administered benefit after you have asked the DWP to ‘reconsider’ their decision, in other words, to look at their decision again. As this is a required step on the way to making an appeal it is called ‘mandatory reconsideration'. The DWP has no time limit to complete mandatory reconsiderations."
I am sorry
But in any event to get the ball rolling you should write and raise a formal complaint.
if no time limit, they can make reconsideration decision more that one year, am I right? Where I can find more information about a formal complaint?
Potentially but unlikely.
You need to write to the DWP and make a complaint
The address should be on the letter that sent the decision
Can I clarify anything else?
You want to say that first decision to cancel Jobseeker's Allowance no chance to be reconsidered??? How people can protect yourself?
I agree - but I can only tell you what the law is. It is the MP's that can change the law
it is discrimination case, some people decide for me how to live, that's right? Everybody have same rights, or the law just not for everyone? my life regulate the law.
Sadly discrimination does not apply here because it is regulated by law.
All you can do is write and make a formal complaint or complain direct to your MP
Sadly I can only tell you what the legal position is
The law is set of words to control the people (workers).. If I can't nothing to do what's the point in life?
Sadly I can only tell you what the legal position is but I have given you the options available, complain to the DWP and your MP
Can I help with anything else?
For complaint the DWP or MP have time limit?
if I write complaint to ES court about my rights
Do you think I have chance?)
It's enough for me today) Thanks.
