TOPIC: WCA missed appiontment for ESA

WCA missed appiontment for ESA 1 week 6 days ago #174751


I sent my SAR form to the local jobcentre last week and today I received a telephone call from a member of the data protection team asking for proof of my address as the one on the records did not match the address on SAR form. I explain I could not send any proof other than the address on the form as I have never moved and when I asked is the address on your records........................the response was a sharp intake of breath, so I am sending a copy of my council tax bill, after being told it was against the data protection act to send information to the wrong address! I think this is going to be a long process!

That's an interesting Catch 22 that I had not considered, hopefully the CT bill will allow the information to be provided.

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems
