Hi i had my f2f of nov last year only heard back last week.Thats nearly a year later the stress i have been under has made my mental health horrific.So anyway i was delighted to have a letter sayin i was owed over £2,500 i was over joyed as i have had to use food banks owe creditors etc to then get a letter a week later to say i was not going to be getting any of it as they have took it off overpaid tax credits which was due to them not puttin in being married etc over 2 years ago which i had agreed to pay bk monthly on my uc which has been happening ever since.
We had it lowered as we were struggling to live and had to use food banks.
Is their anything i can do as i had told other creditors i could start paying them monthly after xamont was paid out of my backdated money so i would actually be clearing my debt rather than just the interest.My mental health and my copd etc have gone through the roof.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.i feel like im at breaking point .
Thank you.
