Just a rant

I tried ringing  DWP at 5.30 to ask them about a payment they are putting in my bank tomorrow and I don't know what it's for and they had still not answered it at 6 and they close at 6.

I know they are slow to answer but that is blooming ridiculous rolleyes

    They are so slow - all you can do is check your account tomorrow and then call them if what you were expecting hasn't been paid.  I too am in a predicament.... just been notified that I have been awarded pip but do not yet know when my dla will stop and pip will take over.  I have heard that their letters do not explain it in the 'easiest of ways to understand' so I am not expecting to be able to understand their jargon - just like you.  Hopefully they will pay you correctly though - good luck!
