The DWP told me that I had been overpaid last October, although it wasn't until April 2017 that they decided how much I had to repay.

This was settled at £3.70 a week out of my Income Support

(I am a full time carer who gets Carers Allowance and Income Support) in May 2017.

 

Today (21st October 2017) they have written to me saying they want to review how much I pay them and increase it. It has only been 5 months!

 

My circumstances haven't changed.

CA and IS are my only sources of income, and out of that I have bills to pay.

 

Is there a letter I can send which will keep it at the current repayment rate?

And can they just increase the repayments?

If they did, can I appeal?

Thanks!

This is typical DWP. They pester you every 6 months or less by letter or phone to try to get more money from you.

Just tell them your circumstances have not changed but do contact them and then they will go away for another 5 months or so
