I received a txt message requesting I ring concerning my income support at 16:58 on Monday 10 October. I have tried three times today and have remained on hold for a total of 1 hour 12 mins, currently on hold again.
Is there a way I can reach a person other than the 0345 number which I am being charged for.
It may be free on your mobile plan if it’s an 03 number. Check.
