Child will not be receiving DLA or the disability elements of tax credits so huge loss of income there already,

parent could just about manage


yesterday told about repaying an overpayment (this is on top of the current amount being repaid)

to another tune of over £50 per week.


Parent asked for reconsideration yesterday about this added repayments but not informed of result yet.

When DLA does stop parent will be losing approx £800 per month, this is without this added repayment.


It's not a problem at the moment but will be very soon, household income will dramitically be cut.

Leaving no disposable income, just about bills will be paid.


Parent understandably very very very concerned.

Tax credits can ask for proof of income I assume and whilst it's ok to provide this at moment as income ok,

within a month this income will be reduced a great deal.

Will HMRC possibly look at this again.


Child extremely upset so there can be no intention of forcing medical assessment, please advise.


I am wondering if parent could enlist MP for help dealing with HMRC?

Hello Harvey.


I'm not sure if you're posting on behalf of yourself or someone else please. It might help us to advise if you could tell us that.

Apologies, should have made myself clearer. I am asking on behalf of a younger family member.
