as per earlier post tax credit have informed me i have a overpayment to repay from 09/10 of judt over £500. They said they had suspended reduction of award to repay it at present as they had been informed of my BR (i was BR nov).
Letter today stating they are recovering from me £5 a week (couldnt tell me why - said they will look into it as they can see BR)
But to my horror i was informed there is another overpayment of £750 from 07/08 which i need to make an arrangement to repay.
where do i stand with this , 07/08 which i was not aware of until today is prior BR so can they recover this from me ?
what about the more recent 09/10 overpayment , can they recover this one ?
Im only getting income support at the moment.
Just when i thought everything was sorted..............
important question, when was your bankruptcy date and when did they FIRST inform you of the overpayments, if they were FIRST requeste for repayment after the bankruptcy date then they will not be included in the bankruptcy
my bankruptcy was Nov 09, the overpayment is for the financial year of 09/10 , they calculated the overpayment as a result of my annual declaration which i was sent in April this year , hence i was informed just recently about the last year overpayment.
They other overpayment which i was unaware of until today was from 07/08 but just found out about it an hour ago! i havent had any letters and it has never been on the overpayment section on any of my award notices (i have kept all of them)
