Having to pay back working tax credits
Hi, I have a question and am wondering if anyone can help. My husband and I were receiving Working Tax Credits last year and were told that we had been overpaid, this was because my husband received part of his pension in a lump sum and we didn't realise it counted as income. We are now having to pay back £3,600. We are both self employed and no longer receiving Working Tax Credits, I have had a recent diagnosis of cancer and have undergone major lung surgery and am not working. Does anyone know if we are still obliged to pay this money back? I have no income coming in apart from a small private pension.
