  1. Not sure if this is benefits or should be somewhere else. There is an outstanding debt to DWP for an overpayment which my relative had been paying off slowly for about 10 years. The relative died recently, and I am dealing with the estate. Within less than 2 weeks from the date of death I had quite a stroppy letter from DWP demanding immediate repayment of a sum about double what I had expected or alternatively providing detailed information on all of the estate's assets in a form to be returned within 7 days. Leaving aside the sensitivity of contacting me even before the funer
  2. We've been through all the usual probate etc for my mum in law who died Feb 2018. We've now received letters from the DWP saying my late mum in law may have been overpaid an income related benefit. They say according to their records and those of the probate there appears to be a discrepancy and want us to provide all her financial statements covering 2003 - 2013. They've told us not to distribute any funds from her estate (which we had already as it all went to my husband, before we'd even heard from them). They've said they can work on the figures they have and calculate the
  3. Hello About 12 month ago i was receiving phone calls and letters from a debt collection agency, demanding payment of £2700, during the 1st and only conversation i requested proof of debt in writing, ie signed paperwork, payment details, how, where and how this debt came to be, as i have had no claims or dealing with tax credits for over 10 years. Any hoaxer can send mail out like this, i have not received any of the above. My partner and i have now received a letter each from tax credits stating that the debt has been returned to them unpaid and demanding the
  4. Hi I wonder if anyone has managed to have their tax credit overpayment written off? I got a letter in 2015 from HMRC telling me I owe £390 from 2009. I have no other details. They past the debt to Pastdue. I read all the tax help I could and found this “Claimant is on sickness/incapacity benefit Where a claimant is in receipt of a sickness benefit such as incapacity benefit or employment and support allowance, cannot afford to offer any repayment to HMRC and there is little prospect of them ever gaining employment, HMRC should write off the outstanding overpayment. If there is
  5. Hi, please if someone could give me advice I would be entirely grateful, I started receiving ESA contributory in the support group 2012 without going into the details last year after a compliance meeting telephone call I was found to have been overpaid since that date, I am going through the appeal stages at the moment preparing paperwork SSCS1A, I was either informed or read it somewhere in my many searches, THE QUESTION IS IF MY PAYMENTS STARTED PRE 2013 DO THEY COME UNDER A DIFFERENT LEGISLATION IF SO HOW WHAT WHERE, IF NOT THANK YOU FOR ANY INFORMATION,
  6. After some advice here folks. Last August HB contacted me saying I had been over paid to the sum of £700, Down to the fact changes in tax credits, changes in tax code etc and I didn't notify them. I admit I didn't, it was my own fault and so my housing benefit was getting reduced to repay the overpayment, lesson learned, notify them of everything. So imagine my surprise when the exact same thing happened again this August, another overpayment for £400. I did notify them of everything this time. I disputed this, I gave them times and dates when I called in to notify them but they were
  7. Hi, This morning i received a tax refund from HMRC, as I have paid to much tax on my earnings when I shouldn't of. I contacted the carers allowance department and they have suspend my payments while they investigate, as they think I have been overpaid however my net pay is under their threshold because I've been paying tax. Can they claim it back from me as I was not at fault? Thanks
  8. Hello Back in June 2017 we had a letter stating due to income (loads of overtime) we had been overpaid tax credits and payments would stop. In August another letter stating that overpayments of £2800 had been received but a final decision would be made. Final decision made and we are now facing a demand for this amount. I have checked through our finances and this seems correct, they want all of 2016 -17 back and the few months of this years. I have read through many of the threads about this and the advice is generally not to phone them, in this case I guess it's ok jus
  9. Didn't know whether to post here or in a benefits subforum. I recently received a letter from Jacobs chasing me for an alleged housing benefit overpayment of just under £2000 from over 7 years ago. I have responded in writing by disputing the debt and stating that as it is statute barred it is now unenforceable although I understand it may be recovered by the local authority through an attachment of earnings order (I am self-employed though) or deductions from future benefit payments. I had no prior knowledge of the alleged debt, have never acknowledged it, and no court informat
  10. Good Morning. Please could anyone offer advice or shed light on my situation. Hubby and i split 2016 after i discovered he was having an affair, never thought to finacially seperate as lots of things were going on and i was dealing with heartache. Fast forward to June 2017 and we decided to give our relationship another go, i failed to inform tax credits as wanted to make sure that the relationship was going to stick...mistake or not i was stupid. Recieved a letter of compliance asking In Nov 2017 asking for information to be sent as they have links that x was linked to
  11. My partner, in a previous relationship, managed to get into housing benefit overpayment situation. It is being paid back through a DEA to the council but at a very small % of part time working at minimum rates of pay. It will take decades. I thought I'd ask here first, would a full and final settlement figure be an appropriate thing to seek under these circumstances, and if so, what figure. thanks
  12. Hello, Sorry if I have posted this incorrectly, I'm at my wits end and so worried dont know what to do, I was claiming housing benefit, and then my partner moved in, at this time we were both working part time. I re-applied for a joint claim, Apr 2013 and gave wageslips and bank statements and so on to which I was advised I would still be entitled to Housing Benefit. In June my partner increased his hours from 20 to 37 and I went on my councils website in May to advise that there had been a change in circumstances and also that my rent had increased. A few weeks later I
  13. Hi, Hope someone can help. Our daughter recently died.We have had the funeral but the matter of costs is worrying. She has no estate as such and only has around £800 in her account . She received an ESA payment of around £250 2 days after death and one weeks housing benefit of around £80. My main question is her funeral has cost around £2600 + , we paid the cremation fees and cost for a celebrant up front which was around £1000. There is a £1600 bill to be paid to the funeral directors which is due on the 10th April. My brother in law who used to be a bank manager is dealing with
  14. Hi, Naturally looking for some guidance, the details are as follows: I currently have a repayment plan with HMRC for overpayment, which i disputed via TC248 and a further appeal, which HMRC failed to acknowledge i was going around in circles and just agreed a repayment plan. I have received a letter from Pastdue for a further overpayment, this is the first i had heard about this as i would have definitely challenged this all the way to court. One overpayment, i can stomach, but further miscalculations are frankly disgusting and damn right unprofessional from a systems perspecti
  15. Hi All I have been arguing with HB (Bexley Council) for some time over a debt that dates back to 2011 when I was self-employed. They have had all bills/receipts and didn't even look at them just wrote back saying no you owe us £27,000. I went to appeal where off the record the Judge gave me advice and said if you haven't the money they cannot get blood from a stone. The trouble I have is this - I am now employed and they want to do an attachment of earnings. They have said I have £137 spare income per month and should pay them £100. The truth of the matter is the DLA payment

  17. Hello, Your advise is needed pls..

  18. Hi I am now a pensioner and not very good with computers . My problem being - late return of year ending WTC form. I had a letter from HMRC that I had failed to return the form (which I had) . I then contacted hmrc by phone and explained and apologised that at the time I should have filled in the form I had been in hospital where I was diagnosed with cancer , he was very polite and sympathetic and told me not to worry and ignore the letter as I had until January to complete and return it . This is where I do get really confused although he did say something with ref
  19. good evening, today when I came home, I had received a letter from the council about an overpayment of housing benefit for 487.59, from over 5yrs ago. the period 02.04.12 to 07.10.12. it was created on the 09.10.12 due to tax credits and start of higher paid job, notifications letters were sent to you informing you of this. they have said that they are going to send out an invoice for this over the Christmas period and to please call the office to set up an arrangement for a payment plan. I phoned the council as this was the first I knew of this overpayment. I
  20. Hi, My partner and I have been overpaying her interest only mortgage in order to try to reduce the capital. Due to changes in our circumstances we can no longer do this and have reduced the monthly payments back to the original. We could do with some extra money over xmas and wondered if we can recover the overpayments made this year? As I understand things the interest is added at the start of the year so as long as we pay that amount over the year then we should not have a problem. I'm not sure if the Building Societies year runs Jan-Dec or April-March but can find that o
  21. Hello , I have found this to be a great site giving invaluable help and advice and would like to ask if anyone can advise on my problem. I will keep it as brief as I can. I was employed for 6 years with a retailer who recently changed ownership. I was on a salary contract. I left last December to become a full time carer. In the summer of 2016 I had family problems and informed my employer I would be resigning. They were initially supportive and my manager said I could work a reduced schedule while I sorted my problems out. This was agreed for 3 months initially.
  22. Hi When I was at university as a single mum, I claimed income support, which you're entitled to do. This was back in 2001-2004! The DWP have contacted me a couple of times over the years saying I fraudulently claimed and didn't declare I was a student. I absolutely did and in any case I would've still been allowed to get income support. They have now written to me to say they have asked my employer to commence deductions from my earnings. The debt is over £11,000! My understanding is that a debt becomes statute barred after 6 years so are they allowed to take this form of
  23. Sorry for another thread but I really am in a bit of a mess/state at the moment and really need some help/advice. After sorting out my UC claim I totally forgot about a WTC overpayment I had from last year and forgot HMRC said to simply wait until I heard from them. Well today I got in from town to find a brown envelope from HMRC saying I owed £1,227.31 from when I was employed as an overpayment. I do owe this and am not disputing it. So, I call HMRC and they tell me that they have passed the 'debt' over to DWP (UC) for them to deal with and they could not tell me any more and I shou
  24. Hi all, This is a weird weird situation. I recently found to my delight my previous employer had overpaid salary, basically I was only due (and given) a week's notice, of which I have proof (submitted at the start of claim), and I started my claim for JSA IB and HB at THAT point, yet I now find they paid a month's notice. I was posted a payslip which shows the excess AND with it, a P45 which also erroneously shows my leaving date as if I were given a month's notice!! So, a strange one, I think you'll agree. I have outright proof - a letter from my employer, signed b
  25. In March 2017 we got a letter from the Pension Protection Fund's Assistance Scheme telling us that they would pay my wife £5.15 every month less £1 tax. We had no idea why we were being paid but yesterday found out it was because a pension scheme into which my wife paid had gone into administration. For some reason I overlooked or forgot to declare this income as I am on pension credit and as a result we have been overpaid about £25.75 for the past 6 months. I never picked it up in my bank statement as it was such a small amount and I never use that account for purchases etc. This was bro
