Social welfare inspector

    Hi Everyone,

    Who can tell me how long a inspector has the right to harass a person?
    I was working when she came to my house. She wrote me to come in personally the next day. I did. She asked me questions, which I answered, and asked for other documents. I sent her everything. Since then, she has sent two more letters, asking for other documents/data, repeatedly asking for the same information that I have already given her, as well as with the disability allowance section, I have been in correspondence for months and have been constantly sending them income certificates since I started working. I already feel what this inspector is doing to me as harassment. How long am I obliged to put up with your harassment? I'm already afraid to check the mailbox because I don't know what else he's coming up with/what she wants from me?

    Thank you

    I'm assuming you are on Disability Allowance & working part time 🤔

    If so, seems extraordinary that at a time the DSP are encouraging those on DA to seek some employment where possible, that your the focus of such attention.

    The harsh reality is SW inspectors have wide ranging powers & can continue to request information from you. Something clearly triggered an investigation & perhaps if you feel you are being harassed, contact your local TD
