Won't that make it easier for them to take me to court?
I've not heard anything at all since that last email but I'm guessing now that means CLI have informed Enagic that they were unable to retrieve the money and now Enagic could be preparing to take it further? Or they might leave it?
People living together for most of a week and having some shared financial arrangements would be considered 'a couple'.
Of course some people just don't think of any benefits claims and contacting Government departments, as they may not realise the importance of reporting change in circumstances. Or they are afraid that they would not be able to afford to live, if their benefits were reduced.
Even if the matter is dealt with as an overpayment, rather than being taken to Court, people should be aware that administrative penalties applied, can be as much as 50% of the amount overpaid. In this case an admin penalty may not have been applied, but depending on the individual case, an admin penalty amount could prove to be a very expensive lesson.
Agree with what London states "In terms of understanding the system, you need to call and inform them every time something changes with your income or living arrangements. It's not really that complex."
Wow, thanks for the heads up on that! I would have looked pretty silly if I'd tried to argue that.
Well it's been 1 week and nothing. I figure that this could also take a bit longer as I was using a work van at the time. I'm under the impression that it can sometimes take longer for a letter to get to you if they have to get your driver info from someone else.
Thanks again folks. I'm still a bit on edge about the whole thing. I'm hoping that in case a NIP does come through that they'll let me go on the speed awareness course. I've never done the speed awareness course but also already have points for speeding so I'm hoping that doesn't make me disqualified from being able to take the speed awareness course.
Don't touch them owe me £500 since January 2019 make excuse after excuse. Seem they always have software problems sending money out. Keep saying they will call back or email nothing been chasing it now for 6 mths the phone staff always have the same banter we will chase it up and get back to you then nothing!
