  1. So... “they might just leave it at that” isnt a likely option then I was expecting them to say I’d overpaid and I’d need to repay or interview under caution or whatever but it was just, claims been cancelled, if you want to do a new joint claim you can, and that was it sometimes it’s the not knowing that hurts.. guess it’s just a waiting game to see what they either A. Try and dig up or B. What the overpayment was
  2. I had the call today and I’m confused about the outcome ... I was honest and said he lived here during the dates mentioned they said they were stopping the claim now but said I can apply for universal credit as a joint claim if I wish and that was it.. . no mention of repayment no mention of caution, call lasted about 3 mins .. I’m confused myself so just waiting to see if any follow up stuff comes
  3. I updated on my thread got you but I don’t really think it’s the same situation as yours tho judging by your post sorry
  4. Sorry it won’t let me delete the comment and I actually just had a phone call about it too, I’ll put it on my own post
  5. So in an odd turn of events, the interview date has come and gone and they didn’t ring me? any ideas on what I should do in this instance??
  6. Hi WTC, just wondering what the outcome of this was?? Have you heard anything? What was said?
  7. That’s how im Planning on starting it but my mind going into overdrive, I’m not going to be able to produce the stuff they are asking for and they are absolutely going to ask me if the person on the letter lives here, yes he does, then when my OH moved in, well That was 4 years ago, so it’s either lie to keep it at those dates and hope or tell the truth and drop myself in further in it , I’m so anxious I just want to get it all out in the open but the financial burden is also going to cripple me i appreciate all the help you have all given me though , I’m taking every bit of it on board
  8. No I agree waffle I will be as open and honest and apologetic as I can I just meant if it got official, I’m assuming it’s only recorded when it’s an interview under caution? Just a review call isn’t evidence was my understanding?
  9. Thanks again DX, so in essence what you are saying as being honest in the review saying my oh has been here 4 years and Owning up is one thing, but then they have to prove via a sar that they have proof or evidence of this to back up that I A. Haven’t told them previous and B. That he was living here all that time,
  10. Hi waffle, I’m sorry to once again come back with another question but when you say you told them you moved in 2016, did you blurt out your dishonesty from the get go, saying I’m sorry inlied etc Or did you just answer the questions honestly as if you didn’t realise you were making such a huge mistake?? as you can see my anxiety with this has my brain doing 1000 miles per hour, I just keep thinking about how I can get them to agree for me to repay without looking at jail time or a criminal record
  11. Out of interest waffle. Did you tell them about the 4 years immediately or was it after they did their own checks? that’s good news Jackson I hope you/we all get to put this sorry mess behind us as soon as possible
  12. Thanks, now I’ve actually spent time to understand my stupidly mine is linked to working tax credit and child tax credit, I legitimately claimed it for years as a single parent and through past abusive relationships and my ptsd I fell in a trap of wanting to maintain my own financial independence, last year I wanted to cancel and my anxiety about doing it crippled me, if they want the entire 4 years for both my bill could genuinely be about 40k , if I get a criminal record I lose my job, I’ve just been so stupid , can’t eat, sleep, can’t even look anyone in the eyes
  13. Thanks waffle dog, although it’s done my anxiety no good at all, can they ask for child tax benefit back too? im sat punching numbers and genuinely worried in an absolute worst case scenario without believing me and without me being able to prove bills as they are all in his name, this could go back as much as 4 years, that could be nearly 40k my partner will likely leave me, I’m petrified of prison, I just don’t know how i let it get this far
  14. Thanks stresshead, apologies for follow ups, so did you tell them about all the dates but they only wanted that specific date period back? if no, was there any other dates that they maybe should have known about?
  15. Thanks Jackson. But you haven’t heard anything more on the previous closed years now??
