(say, in theory, you could get 5 letters in a single week, all escalating from one to the next, then on day 6 dwp starts reducing your benefits automatically?) - also, this document is from 2009 and there may be an updated one + of course the council's own guidances and 'procedures' (not that i trust those much!)
would you be able to do some online digging?
