Winters coming and the stress is coming about that and the prepayment meters it never bothered me before when I was self employed and getting legacy benefits nothing did. This past 6 months has certainly been different well am sure I've gone off track. I said in short at the beginning apologies. So back to todays universal credit a quick reckoning up of outgoings not including food I've got £98 to last a month that's if I ain't forgot anything oldest daughter got some shopping in yesterday still need few things till the next shop all sorts can go through your mind maybe I'm overthinking or maybe just every parent is the same things. Like [my daughter] needs a winter coat, tights, etc for school then there is the FAT man coming (Santa clause) can't even bear thinking about it. Oh going back to the universal credit journal the agent said after I put her right with above if I defer for three months the advance I wouldn't be able to get another if needed during this time but if I wanted she can defer one to help, because they were took out separately so I asked if I deferred one would that remove the (able to ask for advance in 3 months period). It would even though they were separate so the wait for a response is normally 24 hours for a reply funny enough it seems awfully close to the closing time last message of the day so ya gotta wait until end of next day your agent will reply. So if you ask or confirm the query ya gotta wait again so for me it all took that long so all that stress and anxiety of that process, back to the stress and anxiety of getting to the end of the month :(
