the never ending dwp capita journey unbelivable
nce i last posted in this forum in 2017 i would like to ask if anybody can give me advice on my claim. since my last post i would like to update whats happened to me. twice the dwp have closed down my claim because i did not attend a face to face assesmant my case has been going on since 2016 it started when an assessor lied and she said i swore in my assesmant repeatadly and closed my assesmant down as she felt threatened by myself and my partner who is herself a civil servant with 20 years + experience and unblemished record since the first assesmant the dwp have closed my case offically twice . irefused to go to there face to face again after how i was treated in there building but said i would happily have a home visit which is the only choice i knew of the dwp recomended to capita for nearl;y 18 months for a home visit.today i got partial information on a sars request and discovered i had unacceptable customer behaviour marker on my claim.with a pv marker as well with a note saying i should be seen by a lone officer i was devasted that is on my record when no actual incident had occured because the assesor lied..in febuary of this year the appeals tribunal overruled the dwp and said i had good reason not to attend a face to face. for 18 months the dwp had recomended a home visit to capita knowing full well i wouldnt get one with that marker on my claim which i think is deliberate on there part ive complained to dwp about the length of time my case has taken.First point here is why wasnt i informed about this marker which is a potentially violent claimant marker with the extra condition i shouldnt be seen by a lone officer they did not inform me and recommended to capita i should get a home vist when they no if that markers on my claim i wouldnt get a home visit i think that is an absolute abuse of power i went to appeal in febuary 2019 and they have made no contact with me not a phone not a letter nothing since then i have had to ask for sars request toi get my information 2016 started my claim and im no further on than when it started these departmeents asre not fit for purpose and you can imagine the stress ive had over three years having to consistantly chase them up regarding my case the only correspondace ive had off them in writing is both times they shut my case down because of not attending a face to face im appalled at there complete disregard for me as a human bieng please ask me anything about my case and i will tell you whats happened and clarify anything you dont understand( melvin clapton) ps excuse spelling and punctuatiom im not good at either - clea
