I am exempt from having to pay the bedroom tax as I have been on Incapacity Benefit from 1993 up to December 2013 when I was put in the Support Group ESA. I have also lived in the same Council House before 1993.
I wrote to Council explaining this and after three weeks I get a letter telling me to get in touch with DWP and ask them for the proof, so I have wrote yesterday to the DWP where all records are held. What I wish to know is that in the letter the person who told me to send in proof has put a limit on the date it has to be back to them, which is the 4th March 2014.
I do not think that is fare that gives me 22 days for this proof to come back to me and there only 28 days in this month, let alone get it sent into them as I am sure there will be loads and so it will get delayed in that respect.
If I am correct this person cannot put a time limit on something that is legal can they? I just feel like the person is trying to block or do things in a way that is going to be difficult for me. So I think I may need to make an appointment with the Mental Health CAB that is near to me; I have phoned but it was leave your message and a number, and I have done so.
Does anyone have any info on this can she put a time limit on it?
