Q. Are you currently receiving Universal Credit or Working Tax Credit?
No, I am not receiving UC or WTC
Q. Has the pandemic made it easier or more difficult to manage on the money you receive?
This pandemic has made money more difficult to manage. Heating has been on more as library is closed. It was where I could keep warm, browse books and surf the internet without any cost. I'm spending more on food for my teenager who seems to graze all day like cattle. My income dropped as child maintenance has not been paid. Ironic that the DWP cannot chase missing maintenance payments due to staff shortage during lockdowns but can send out forms to remind you that benefit is due to run out and to reapply. Who is in the DWP office and is it necessary?
