Ex partner moved in, customer compliance telephone interview
I've been separated from my 10 year old daughter's mum since 2012. I am our daughters primary carer. I'm in the support group of ESA due to various mental health conditions and in September 2019 I was formally diagnosed as having ADHD and ASD and have just recently started medication. In November last year my daughters mum fell on hard times and was made homeless along with her 15 year old son. I wasn't going to see the mother of my child on the streets so I said they could move in with me. I have a spare room that her son could use and I have given up my bedroom so the she could have it and I sleep on the couch as it is big enough for my needs. As soon as she officially moved in I informed the DWP and the council. The DWP stopped my money until they received a couple of forms back. The forms arrived within a few days and I filled them out explaining in detail how she is my ex partner and we are not a couple. A few days later I received a phone call stating that they were reinstating my benefits and they'd make a payment that afternoon. They said they would probably need to do a home visit but they'll wait until after Christmas. I've just received a letter this morning giving me notice of a compliance telephone interview in two weeks time. People have said I shouldn't worry but I can't help but worry about it, I get really anxious about these sort of things.
