Received letter from DWP to say that debt owed of £226 and will be taken from husband's pension at £21 per week - no explanation of what debt about. Rang to find out and was told it was from 2006/07 - explained that he was notified of debt and I sent cheque to cover what was owing, which they said yes was on system and they would sort. They took the £21 out of his pension and I rang again to be told that the debt was from Income Support in 1996 for £426 (we had no knowledge of this) and they had requested files. Received letter to say that because there was a debt from 1996 and a letter was sent to him (we never received this) the cheque I sent in had automatically deducted that amount from the cheque leaving £226 of debt still owing for Pension Credits. Can they do that? Letter received from them after cheque was sent said without prejuidice for that particular debt. As far as we're concerned we paid the Pension Credit debt and new nothing of the Income Support Debt - what rights do we have because it's DWP?

hiya and welcome to CAG,

 

the dwp have a right to collect any outstanding monies from overpayments etc from any current benefits or pensions.

 

You would need to write to the DWP asking for a complete breakdown of the amount owed if you are disputing it.
