If you or your partner are working we will also need proof of your latest earnings. This should be:-
- The latest 5 weekly, 2 monthly or 3 fortnightly payslips. If your payslips are handwritten they are not acceptable for benefit purposes. We will provide an employer's certificate which should be completed by your employer and then returned to this office.
- If payslips are not yet available, please provide a letter from your employer or your contract of employment to confirm the terms of your employment (hours, rate of pay etc).
Remember - we need to see the original documents, not photocopies. If you do not provide the documents we need, your benefit may be delayed. Hand written or 'envelope style' wage slips are not acceptable for benefit purposes. Please contact this office and ask for an 'Employers Certificate' form. This form should be completed by your employer and then returned to this office.
