Imo it's mad to assume that two people that are going out are supporting each other. Usually that's only something that happens after many years.

It's a weird flex by the government. Double standards regarding the tax credits. And they can make assumptions without having to back it up. And i don't understand how and why the criteria for a qualifying adult doesn't apply to determining a family unit?

My whole point about this is that there's different levels of "cohabitation". And it should be treated differently. I'm out of work and a difficult time, I'm doing my best to get a job, I've paid my taxes and I'm denied support for unreasonable reasons.

But if I had a different housemate everything would be fine. Which is why I asked if anyone had ever appealed in a similar situation.

I know people here don't care, and think I'm trying to convince them of my situation. I'm trying to understand the logic and justification. The replies of "that's just how it is" don't do much.
How much rent are you paying now?

OP, your problem isn’t no one is explaining this properly to you, the problem you have I’m afraid is your unwilling to accept the matter of fact as it is. There’s unfortunately no option available but

1. Go live on your own
2. Get a job
3. Submit an appeal with the justifications you provide here

No one here can help you anymore than has been done, you’ve asked for advice, it’s been giving countless times and each and every time you fight back with the same arguments that have been debunked previously.

Unfortunately the reality is: in the eyes of DEASP you are being supported financially by your partner. If that’s not the case (as in your paying your own way) then submit an appeal to them and provide them evidence of that & also explain why you need the payment. You can bang the drum and cry it’s not fair all you want, thems the brakes. You don’t have to like it, but those are their rules & if you’re asking for their money then you’re agreeing to abide by them. No one likes rules, especially when they impact negatively on you, but this is just how the world works. It’s not about sex or whatever you keep saying. The fact is either;

1. You’re paying your own way somehow
2. Your partner is supporting you by paying rent, food & bills while you live there (support doesn’t = handing you cash every Friday to spend how you like)
3. You’re not eating and sleeping outside the past few weeks, which I reckon is not the case.

I suggest you grow up a bit & just go through the appeal. If they deny it then that’s just how it is, the rules won’t be changed because you don’t like it. It’s time to get into the real world. All you want as far as I can see is someone to give you a loop hole or some way around this, of which none exist.

I think he feels stupid for being honest which has landed him in this situation. He's just venting at this point. He's living a much reduced quality of life on a daily basis than he would had he been knowledgeable about things.



The thread is serving a purpose in educating people. Hopefully someone reads it before they go and make the same mistake and put themselves in the same situation. It also highlights the mindset of many deasp workers which is an invaluable insight for people who may go in expecting empathy.


At this point i'm sure he knows his options are what they are. If he knew what he knows now, I'm sure he would done things differently.
