    Hello @Gooner0605

    Welcome to the community, thanks for joining us and I hope you are well today.

    Sorry to hear of everything you have been through, it does sound like a bit of a confusing situation so I'm not surprised you've reached out for help. 

    I have moved your discussion over to our Work and employment category, which you might find it useful to browse for related discussions. This is a very supportive place, so I'm sure that other members will offer their insight and thoughts about what you are going through.

    Have you considered challenging the decision made by UC?
