I was recently speaking with a friend who lost her partner prior to Christmas. Apart from the obvious trauma of that she went through I was amazed at all the hoops she had to jump through regarding the resulting financial issues. I began to wonder if reluctance to discuss death/dying is likely to leave a lot of people with similar problems.
Do you know where all the appropriate financial documents are? Does your partner know? PS: I think my answer would be No (but I’m working on it)
This is rather curious. Over the past week I have emailed the DWP nuneroua times, without receiving any reply as I have not even received the letter. On Monday I contacted my MP, not just for myself but for the many thousands of us who have not received the payment. He offered to take up the matter with the DWP. I have just checked my account and the money has been paid in today although I still have not received the letter.
In just a few weeks time the winter fuel payments will be sent out, now, I for one are very grateful that the taxpayer is helping me. but, Should this payment be paid in January/ February when the bills come in, not months before you have even used the energy. My biggest bill comes from the Yuletide period, and January and February often the darkest months and the coldest months when I use the most energy.
