The CMS is a shambolic Government department, which is failing both the receiving parents and the contributing parents of which its purpose is to help.

In my experience dealing with the CMS has been one of the most frustrating, disappointing and damn right depressing situations I have ever had to face. It is like going back in time to the Wild West, where as far as the CMS are concerned, anything goes, as far breaking rules and fairness is concerned.

Their rule states that a contributing parents wage must rise or fall by 25% before they will look at changing their payments. Well mine has not risen by 25% or anywhere near, yet my contributions have been unfairly increased and they refuse to listen to common sense, and reduce them back to the level they should be, the level they indeed set, inline with my weekly wage. I now have to take them to court to hopefully get an independent ruling to make them change it.

The furlough scheme currently in place, a reduction of 20% of wages, proves their 25% reduction before payments reduce,  is grossly unfair, as furloughed parents losing 20% of wages will not see a reduction in their CMS payments, yet are facing financial problems due to Covid19.
