    Hi,

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

    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.
