Benefits System...

Our system is a balls up and an utter joke. Those of us who need it and genuinely entitled to it end up not receiving any help yet those who can work and can have a full time job choose not to purely to use the 15 hours of work maximum to their advantage in order to receive the money! It is a fucking joke!

    Hey @HannahBannanna,

    I don't know much about the benefits system but do you want to talk about what's going on? I know there are heaps of flaws in the systems here, but if you need help let's try and find a solution to get you help!

    Hi @HannahBannanna

    I'm not really an expert on the benefits system, but I agree that it can be frustrating when people seem to be trying to take advantage of it. Like @Lucy307 said, we might be able to help you out if you are willing to explain what's happening.

    Hi HannahBannanna,

    The vast majority of people who claim benefits do need it, but agreed that there are several people who do need it yet don't receive it/enough. There will always be people that will take advantage of the system, unfortunatelyx

    Much love <3

    Hey gang. This thread is a few months old and the original poster isn't around anymore, so I've gone ahead and closed this. Feel free to start a fresh discussion on this if you like, though. :)
