I am in need of a bit of advice. My partner moved out on the 24th may this year. Initially it was only a short term thing he was struggling and needed a break. Hence I did nothing about our joint tax credits claim. I did this on the 19th of July why it became clear that this was going to be a more permanent thing. They stopped the joint claim from the 24th and only back dated the new claim for myself for one month. This has left me having to pay back an over payment which is ok for the month they have back dated but it also means for the over 3 weeks before that I have to pay the money back yet I haven't received any tax credits. This doesn't seem right to me can I appeal this decision? Or is there nothing I can do. Thank you in advance for any advice.
