Thanks Michael.

I am hoping the result is a positive one.

Yes Marce it is a worry, but something that is out of my control.

Not sure why my post has appeared 3 times!!

Hi Goosed,

Yes things have moved quickly from initial euphoria of having our IVA accepted, to be told that job losses are very real.
I just hope next week brings better news.

Well we have our individual meetings this coming Wednesday morning. I should then know if I am to be made redundant[:(]

If I am made redundant what will that mean in respect of our IVA?

Having made just 1 IVA payment, will that mean our IVA is doomed, or can we look at a payment break?

Having thought we had nailed our debt problem, and now finding out redundancy is very real, things have never been so bad.

Thanks.

Hi Sinking Fast, I hope your meeting goes well for you and redundancy is not going to happen.

If it does happen, contact your IP immediately and hopefully all options will be discussed.

All the best x
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

Hi SinkingFast and Good Luck for Wednesday. I know people take payment holidays soemtimes in this situation - maybe that could be an option?

I would wait.

Hopefully you won't be made redundant.

If you read your IVA proposal, there is a section in there covering redundancy, and you also have the benefit of a payment break for up to six months, so I wouldn't worry unecessarily at this stage.

Well its not good news. My position has been made redundant today, the only saving grace is my 12 week notice period which buys me some time I suppose.

I have emailed Melanie for her suggestions, and now start the task of job hunting.
I just hope our IVA is not doomed, and I can secure another position going forward.

Many thanks.

Oh no, what bad news! I'm really sorry to hear that

Best of luck in finding something new. What kind of work do you do?

Oh no, Sinking fast...I`m so sorry for you. I hope you find something soon. I can`t imagine how you must feel.
As you say, at least you`ve got three months notice, so at least a little time to try and sort something out.
Will you get a redundancy package that could possibly be put forward as a full and final taking into account your situation???

Hi Goosed.

I have been in position for under 2 years, so no I am not due any redundancy. What I do get is 3 months pay without any deductions, which will give me some more time to hopefully bag another job.

Oh hell...I`m sure Melanie will have some advice and be able to come up with some short term solution that will at least give you some respite whilst you try and sort a job out...I just don`t know what to say, just when things seemed to be looking up.
