Bypass Norwich! Local benefit claimants must read

Bypass the Benefit Delay Scandal

Jobcentre Plus gets correspondence sent to the below published address for the Suffolk (?) area:

Bury St Edmunds BDC
Thorpe Road
Norwich
NR99 1AD

It actually then gets redirected to:

Bury St Edmunds BDC
St Andrews St North
Bury St Edmunds
IP33 1TT

This is intentional to delay your appeal and your correspondence going to a decision maker.

Post a letter today to the actual Bury St Edmunds BDC Address via first class Royal Mail service it should arrive tomorrow or the following day.

Send it to the Norwich address (notice the NR99 postcode, this is a special postcode it doesn’t really exist) it can take up to a month for anyone from the BDC to process it (I have seen a document I sent to the BDC with a stamp confirming this).

Appealing?

Next time use the actual physical address not the Norwich processing centre address and they should be able to process it within a week.

Hope this helps.

  1. this has been happening in other areas also,locally the job centre mail is directed to an address twenty five miles away,i have heard mentioned by job centre staff “where it gets opened”.

    so much for confidential information,it is a development that raises questions.obviously its read before it gets to the person its supposed to.

  2. Not to mention probably the other reason of such delay is the Jobcentre thinking unemployed people will be sending radioactive parcels…

  4. Just to confirm that it works.

    So much quicker. I posted on a Thursday and got a response the following Tuesday.

    This mean’t it got there on the Friday and they managed to sort it to the Decision Maker either that day or the following Monday after the weekend, and the response I got came the following day – the Tuesday.

    Much better than waiting for around 2 weeks or so…

  6. I wish I had seen this, i have paid £5.90 for Special Delivery 1pm next day, yesterday to the NR99 address 😦 I have just done track & trace only to be told ‘my information is not yet available’ this is appalling.

    • After posting my appeal with Special Delivery 1pm and then reading the above, i kept checking on Track & Trace as the the whereabouts of my letter…
      I kept getting the same message right upto 4 days (Saturday Morning) after the day it should have arrived.
      Then to my surprise later on the Saturday morning the post man arrived with 2 brown envelopes.
      One contained the copy of the medicl report I had requested and the other an acknowledgment of receipt of my letter.

    • PERSONAL POINT ON SECURITY. NEVER NEVER EVER PUT YOUR NAME AND NATIONAL INSURANCE NUMBER ON A LIVE POSTING BOARD. NOR SHOULD YOU HAVE PUT YOUR PHONE NUMBER.
