This may be a bit off topic but I am thinking other supply teachers may have experienced this as well. Well, I went to apply for a housing allowance with my boyfriend last month. The man did not accept my payslips and said I was to turn them in as I recieve them and our allowance would adjust. I turned in one for about 130.00 and then we get letters stating we now OWE them money as my pay has changed and we lost our council tax benefit. My boyfriend went in to get an explanation and turned in my next playslip which embarrasingly was 40.00 ( I was doing one on one tuition) and then we get letters stating how we owe them even more now!! So basically we get a third of the original amount now every 2 weeks. Do they really not pay attention to anything and let the computer do all the work? Im a dual citizen and originally from America so all this is new to me. Was I being too honest in turning in my payslips?! lol I dont want to turn in anymore now if I wont get any money over the summer holidays!Can anyone relate...or explain?!
