Quote from: Steve J on 06 June 2020, 08:06:29 AMLike any organisation, it all depends who you get to talk too based upon my experience. I now get Carer's Allowance for looking after our son with Special Needs and whilst not much, it pays the food bill each week.

Quote from: Techno on 06 June 2020, 08:05:37 AMThey ARE helpful......Once you can get through....that's the worst part. Yep. The PEOPLE are not the 'jobs-worths' as often viewed...but ain't technology great? Have sat in a phone 'queue' for 50 mins until connected...then the HMRC bloke/lady answered my questions perfectly in less than 1 minute! And, then, with other Gov't depts....when you get through, the nice girl says they will send a form...which never turns up...not her fault, 'bless', but... All The Best to Anyone with probs!
