Hi, I would like to know when the Risk review team will contact me because I am in a hell of a bind, I will ask someone to email them or do something for me so they can review the tasks I have completed and the documents uploaded  me and get an answer or get in touch with me as soon as possible because I will surely end up on the street already and we may even die of hunger and misery with my children because of the obstructed system for the third month they are checking me and what they demand of me  I provide every single document and evidence, and will the Risk Review review system know that my children are miserable and that a small baby has no way of understanding me, that I have no means to buy them food and that there is no puree to eat and cry  for him to want and I have no way to buy, I rely on the food bank, now I don't have any strength to wait every day, my heart is breaking and I don't stop crying and harassing, this is my last hope to get my payment released because I will also be left on the street, I don't have  how to pay my rent Thank you very much for your understanding.

    I'm sorry to hear of the issues you're having. This is scope forum and has nothing to do with DWP or UC so I can't tell you when you will be contacted by them. 

    Has your UC been suspended? If so how long for please? 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Thank you. That's an awful long time for your payments to be suspended. I would urge you to contact your local MP and tell them exactly what's happened and hopefully they will contact UC on your behalf and try to speed up the process. Usually an MP contacting them does get them shifted. See link. contact-your-mp

    You will need to make sure you tell them your name and address.

    Hi @Yura1991, sorry to hear about your troubles with the risk review, 3 months is a long time to go without your Universal Credit and I'm sorry you're struggling so much. Please do try getting in touch with your MP to see if they can help look at your case.

    Are you staying in a safe place at the moment or do you think you'd be at risk of homelessness? If you're unable to stay where you are it would be a good idea to get in touch with Shelter to see if they can help support you.

    Are you and your family getting enough food from the food banks? Is there anyone helping you and your children get enough food at the moment?

    I'm going to send you an email so please look out for that :)
