Jane’s story – an update
“Jane” was in full time employment when she went sick (mental health issues) and onto SSP. The employer ceased trading so she went on to ESA. Now on UC but because of the 5 week delay in paying it, she had a £300.00 loan which is now having to be paid back at the rate of £56.00 per month. After paying rent and utilities, she now has £50.00 to last 2 weeks. Once the loan is repaid the situation will improve.”
