My getting a UC50 form; UPDATE.

MariaR Member Posts: 23 Listener
Hello, Poppy, Harp86, Chloe and Adrian, I hope I've remembered everyone.
I thought I'd lost my 24 points Tribunal letter. I found it! 
I've managed to download a pic of it.
Now, what's the best thing for me to do;
Wait for a new UC50 form and do it all again?
Or, do as Harp86 suggested; go in my UC account and  message my case worker and ask for a MPG1 summat? 
Or, should I do both?
I'm nervous, now, of getting it wrong. 
Thank you all for your help. I truly was at the end of my tether and becoming  very stressed. You've all helped me enormously.

    You still need to do what you were advised to do in your other thread by Hart because they owe you backdated money.

    As previously advised, you could still be sent a UC50 form and if you are sent one then you will need to fill it in and return it. The 24 months recommendation by the Tribunal, is just a guide.

    ah. ok, Poppy. I'll do that. I was on the phone earlier to someone from the complaints dept. and HE phoned my case manage, Joanna, and she said she's sending one out today! So, I may get two! It's like waiting for a bus; 2/3 come at once. Well, as soon as I get it I'll fill it in and THIS TIME I'll make it better than the first one. Thank you, Poppy for all your wonderful advice and your patience too.

    Good morning @MariaR. Thank you for updating us with this, it would certainly seem that you should already be in the support group equivalent on Universal Credit and that this should be a reassessment not a new application. Let us know how you get on when you query this. :)

    I will, Adrian. Though, I've been told that my 24 points letter isn't worth the paper it's written on. I'm still puzzled as to why I've had to wait this long for a UC50 form.  Well, haven't got it yet. If it's not in the post by tomorrow then I must phone Joanna, my case worker, AGAIN!  It's not a done deal yet! .......... wish it was.

    The advice you've been given is incorrect! Your ESA support group award should be transferred to your UC claim.

    With UC they mostly don't know what they are talking about lol.

    Wow that's insane! The training they had was very little, so i heard but that's not really any excuse. Some of the stories i hear of really are shocking.

    Well done for helping that person receive the money they are entitled to!

    I must admit, it took me a while to understand UC but i'm getting there finally. Your knowledge on UC is pretty amazing BTW, thanks for your help, appreciate it!

    I agree with you there but i'm sure alot would disagree.

    Some people are actually better off on UC too. What a lot of people don't realise is that UC is paid monthly, so when working out what benefits a person used to receive, it seems like they are worse off. Not the case for everyone though, if the payments are worked out correctly.

    Bear in mind folks UC might be working for some people?

    But If this plank Boris and IDS gets in then I'm sure it will be a re-run of devastation with IDS linked with Boris and what IDS has already inflicted on the poor and disabled over the last 10 years. Vile excuse of a man is IDS I can see more torture on the way. 

    God help us we need to get this Tory government out for Christ sake.
    I created one of the campaign election videos for Labour, and Jeremy Corbyn,
    This is a new version of Emeli Sande, Hope "You Are Not Alone
    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS, UC etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now that is the Tories. 

    You can see the video here.
