    Yes, if you owe them money they can take that from the money they owe you.

    I see from a recent thread that this was a Tribunal decision. It can take up to 8 weeks for your award to be put into payment and about the same time to receive what is owed. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    They may yes but can’t tell you for sure whether they will for definite. If it was me then I would just pay that debt off anyway and then it will be something you can forget about.
