hi everyone!

this is my first post,new to this too.

i have a few questions i will be asking in the comming weeks,so i hope you fine people can help me.i received a letter from the department of work & pensions in october 2007 telling me i owed £195,also stating that every opportunity for payment has now been given, i had not heard anything from the D.W.P since 2006.this letter relates to a penalty charged for an overpayment of income support back in 2001,the overpayment was paid back by april 2006.i assumed that the penalty was included & it was paid back with the overpayment.i contacted three debt recovery centres & not one advisor could tell me exactly what the debt was for.so i wrote to them asking what it was for & any proof that i have not already paid it.they wrote back just telling me that i aggreed to pay the penalty to avoid further action i.e court. after reading a little about debt which is statue barred,i was just wondering does this apply in this case?:???:

On the National Debt Line it states;

 

Benefit Overpayments & Social Fund Loans

 

The Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) has 6 years to take action through the courts to recover benefit overpayments and social fund loans. This time starts running from the date of the final decision made on the overpayment and from when the social fund loan was due to be paid. But the DWP are still allowed to make deductions from your benefit for a debt over 6 years old as they don’t need to go to court to do this. This applies to overpayments of benefits such as income support, job seekers allowance, pension credit, housing benefit, council tax benefit and paying back social fund loans
