This is how some DWP staff humality ill people
Thanks for accepting your community. I'm one who with depression, anxiety, panic attacks past a few years.
I am a EEA citizen living in the UK with my partner for more than 4 years.
Most of the time I was employed and student, and my partner full time employed.
January 19th my general manager dismissed me from work without reason, legal process and notice period after a year of work for him. After the Area Manager started investigating what happened in maintime my health got worst and I was unable to looking for job and went to see doctor for help.On 19th of March I applied with my partner for Universal Credit because need some suport and help for short time until get better to start work.
We waited for the decision for 6 weeks and got the letter that I dint have Right of Reside in UK and my partner is losing the rights because it is the non EU family member. The decision was made that I lost all rights after 4 years of life in the UK. Gap between my last day od employment and application for UC was 8 weeks and in that time I was resolving problem with my company because i was not paid final pay and ACAS was arbiter between us. DM did not even try to request more information, all process was confusing they requested only sick note since January and I did not know my doctor can give me backdate .After that I had several panic attacks and even worse depression and anxiety. My GP gave me backdated sick note what was sent to DWP, i have all proof of residency in UK without any gap. Very humiliating, stressful, uncertain, loss of money both me and my partner feel hurted and frustrated. Only income is my partner wage.
