    Hi @katiemack, and a warm welcome to the community! 

    Sorry to hear this, it may just be an admin error but hopefully some of our other members will be able to advise further.

    Hi,

    The best thing you can do is ring DWP and ask why your payment isn't the amount it usually is.

    There's a minimum payment based on how much electric you use and how much you owe them. I used to pay mine this way.
