Closed my claim for HB, the LA have said there is an overpayment of circa £200, no real issues, but due to the attitude of the debt recovery department and the arrogance of one individual I set up a S/O for £1 a week.

 

 

 

They're now demanding I fill in and return their I&E form, can l just confirm that l have no obligation to complete this?

 

 

They're basically saying they will only accept £50 a month minimum.. I just laugh and say they'll be lucky!

Can anyone give me a steer as to where l stand on this issue at all?

 

 

Had their final demand, rang them and informed them I had been advised by CAB that there was no requirement to complete their I&E form..............well that lit the blue touch paper!!

 

 

Was then met with, well we can get a DEA without a court order, to which l simply responded with "they're only effective if I'm working".......

If you had an overpayment, you now have a debt. The debt will not disappear, it can be deducted from other benefits which you receive. If you do not receive any benefits at the moment, if you make a claim in the future, it will be deducted at that stage.

TY, I know all of that, I'm specifically needing advice regarding their demands for I&E forms because l won't bend over and pay £50 a month.

 

It is after all a non priority debt is it not?

You are under no obligation to fill out the I&E forms if they are not from a court, however, the next steps which your local council takes to recover the debt may be based on that refusal. Whether or not it is a non-priority debt depends on what action your council can take to recover the debt. If you are receiving any benefits it can be considered a priority debt as deductions can be taken from your current benefits.

Im in receipt of no social security payments,

 

 

 

I suppose 4£ a month is a little stingy so i might up it to £25.

Your under no obligation to comply with their request BB...but in this instance better to comply (of a fashion) and get it sorted as they can get nasty...

 

"Cutting off the nose to spite the face" springs to mind :wink:

Yes my thoughts exactly Andy, "choose your battles" springs to mind also.

 

 

I'll download an i&e form from elsewhere and fire it off to them with my very generous offer of 25£ a month.
