OK, following advice on various threads, my daughter opened a new Bank Account because Abbey were being intolerable over fees.

 

On Monday we took a letter into her branch stating the various rules/laws on the taking of benefits to cover bank charges.

 

Despite this, they have today taken most of her Child Tax Credit to cover charges. Having telephoned the Benefits' Office, not sure they can do anything!!

 

We are going to go into the branch later today and ask that she be allowed to withdraw the amount on the Tax Credit. I am sure I have read somewhere that they have to allow her to have this credit?

 

We have transferred most (hopefully, all) transactions to her new account, but it was too late to stop this one.

 

We are going to start a claim for charges refund, hopefully under the hardship rules, but she needs this money to feed her children until the next payment goes into the new account.

 

Any ideas Please?

Move all banking activity to another banking group if you have a dispute - your funds can be used to offset debts within the same group.

Be careful with Banking details (card/account numbers) as these can be used to take unauthorised payments.

Thanks for the link, knew it was somewhere. As I say, we had sent the letter of appropriation (well actually hand delivered it) on Monday so they have no excuse.

 

Will let you know later what happens!

Thank you for that - but how is it then that some DWP departments can and have (or so I read) made the banks repay this amount by reversing the credit?

 

I suspect that this is another 'can of worms' to open!

I would suggest that your Daughter contacts te Jobcentre and asks about opening a Post Office Card Account. She will be able to get all her benefits paid into the Post Office Account without ever getting charges.

 

I opened my Post Office Account many years ago and i have never had any problems. I do have another bank account but i use that for paying bills etc. I keep them both separate. It works for me.

Tell her to open an account with her local credit union. Many now offer the same services as banks DD's debit/cash cards etc & for little or no cost. As long as you a regular saver they will also lend you money
