Has anyone received this years P60 yet? I’ve usually had mine by the end of April, but not this year.
I don’t want to hassle DWP if they’re just running a bit behind, but given previous issues with post being lost or seriously delayed I am a bit concerned.

    Hi @axwy62, is this still something you are waiting on?

    Yes, and I am concerned but I know they’re busy so don’t want to hassle unnecessarily. That said, they’re supposed to send all my post via email but the little I actually receive is often 3 or more months late and I need it for my tax return.

    I have never received my p60 from the DWP until early June at the earliest.
    I am a person with epilepsy not an epileptic, my illness doesn't define me.

    Unfortunately I was right to be concerned, for the second year in a row my P60 has vanished.
    And it gets worse. Having 'misplaced' my P60, they gave me all the relevant numbers on headed paper as an alternative, only the numbers were completely wrong. Luckily I spotted the error - I know they didn't pay me that much! - but if I hadn't I'd have been entering incorrect information on my tax return. I'm not sure how HMRC would have viewed that, but I'm really glad I won't be finding out. Well, not this year anyway. Sigh.
