  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: “Ask a Benefits Question” in Home, Law & Money

    I spent quite a lot of time over the last few months overhauling all the benefits content for the "Money" section of TheSite. It will go live in the next couple of weeks. Edit: it is now live! I wrote a guide to claiming benefits a few years ago (don't use this now - the system's changed a lot in the past six years!), and have had personal experience too. And in updating all TheSite's content,...

  2. unfair late fee?

    I've just been charged 12 pounds by my Alliance+Leicester/MBNA Credit card for paying my bill 2 days after the due date. I've been paying that bill for years by standing order, but they decided to move the due date 8 days forwards. They apparently wrote to tell all customers about this in July, but I do not recall receiving a letter - but I may have simply thrown it away assuming it was Junk....

  4. Giving a professional reference

    If you get a form asking you to be a reference for someone who's a two-faced, talks-out-her-arse, trouble making cow, what are you supposed to do? Like, the form says "How long have you known this person?" obviously you can just put how long you've known them, but for questions like "Are they of trustworthy character and able to perform the duties of this role?" I wouldn't want to put- no they...

  5. Online banking/payments

    I'm pretty new to online banking, especially in terms of doing anything more spectacular or exciting than balance checking and paying into a savings account. So any experts please add your two cents :) I've been doing some freelance writing/translation for some website while we've been living in Sweden (not Swedish website, I WISH I was at that standard ;)) well for the last two months...

  6. Redundancy Q's

    Had my final notice of redundancy today. One point of interest has struck me which I wanted to run past those more knowledgeable! Bear in mind today is October 17th! "Your contractual entitlement to notice is 5 weeks, but as we are giving you warning of this now means your notice period is between the 15th October and 16th November 2007. Therefore this is no balance of notice owed to you." ...

  7. Laundry Day!!!!! (Okay it's not THAT exciting, but humor me)

    So this weekend was laundry day--well weekend. I had like 5 loads to do it sucked!!!! The only good thing was that my clothes smelled freaking amazing. You know how you get your clothes out of the dryer and you just want to lay in them because they are so warm/hot?? Well, seeing as I'm too cheap to buy detergent most of the time I used these samples from Pure Essentials. I got detergent, fabric...

  10. What would you do?

    If you went to a cashpoint, took out £200, a week later it hasn't appeared on your statement. I took out £300 last night and that's came on this morning. I'm aware privately owned cashpoints might take a bit longer because they need ot send a bill off to your bank I'm guessing but the money was withdrawn last thursday. For obvious reasons I don't want to query the bank :p but I'm not sure how...

  12. Credit Cards

    My girlfriend is going to the U.S. soon and the hotel she is staying in requires a credit card as the majority of hotels do. She just wants to get one and then cancel it without using it. Will she incur any charge for this at all? Sorry, I'm absolutely useless when it comes to credit cards.

  15. Loan insurance - making a claim

    I've had insurance on my loan since I took it out but it completely slipped my mind (which I guess is what the bank anticipates!) that I had it until it was mentioned by someone in the bank today. I've been off work sick since June (going back in November) and they are sending me a claim for to claim for the backdated money, so I should be looking at about £800 altogether. Has anyone ever...

  18. Help With Income Support Please?

    I sent off a claim to the job centre about claiming income support. They also told me that I needed a medical certificate from my doctor. I told them that this wasn't possible until October 26th. They basically said 'oh well, try and get another appointment'.:rolleyes: (this was the earliest possible) They wrote to me this morning telling me that I was only entitled from September 3rd to the...

    Hello everyone, I have a dog (bitch) and it sleeps outside in my back garden. We live in a terraced house and the house that backs onto our house has a dog which has been climbing over the fence and shagging my dog. We spoke to the owners several times to ask them to stop their dog and have also asked if the dog has been neutered as we did not want puppies. Despite the fact they assured...
