    also a problem with mine when I phoned! they had processed and accepted my claim but hadn't sent the funds to my bank account! I have been waiting two weeks! If I hadn't rang I would have been waiting and waiting until I did!!! he sent the funds as we spoke and said they take 3 days, so either Friday or Monday for me! dependant on whether they count today as a day! lol) :wacko:

    i sent mine off 3 weeks ago yesterday - got a letter back to say it was refused even though i get tax credits - rang the tax credits to comfirm that im elegible and rang up the sure start peole where some woman kept me on hold for about 20 minutes and seemed to assume i was stupid so someone rang me back the next day turns out they put my national insurance number in the computer wrong !! so the woman said she would now authorise my claim and send the money to my bank in he next 3 days
