Second month not paid

I’ve had to ring and prompt uc to pay me twice now, November and Decembers payment wasn’t there on due date. 

No reason given once again. 

Now not paid me my lrcwa and it’s the fourth month. 

Apparently they are busy? 

If I’m entitled to it shouldn’t I get it? I’m so angry.

    Hi @galowo

    I would be angry too.

    You could write a request in your journal, asking the reason why you weren't paid without a reminder. 

    If that makes no difference, you could approach you MP and ask them to intervene to get the administration of your benefit improved. The MPs need to know that the new system is causing such significant problems. to their constituents - they are the ones who can vote for improvements. 

    I hope this helps a bit. 

    Best wishes
